UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE PROGRAM LETTER No.20-15
WIOA Operating Guidance : Yes
Unemployment Insurance and the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014
To provide guidance to state workforce agencies (state UI agencies) responsible for administration of the Federal-State Unemployment Insurance (UI) programs on implementation of the provisions of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) related to UI programs, beginning July 1, 2015, and to: 1) recommend that state UI agencies begin (if they have not already) working with other workforce partners to develop strategies to implement WIOA; and 2) encourage states, as they develop strategies for WIOA implementation, to consider how to most effectively leverage Federal-State UI programs. As referenced in this guidance, "UI programs" include: the state's Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services (WPRS) program, Trade Readjustment Allowances (TRA) under the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program, the state's Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessment (RESEA) program (replacing the UI Reemployment and Eligibility Assessment (UI REA) program), the state's Self Employment Assistance (SEA) program, and the state's Short-Time Compensation (STC) program, if the state operates an STC program.
