Title :
  Evaluation of Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services System: Interim Report
Release Date :
Abstract :
  In this report, we present our findings from Phase I of a four-year study of the design, implementation, and operation of worker profiling and reemployment services systems, an initiative legislated by Public Law 103-152. This Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services (WPRS) initiative essentially modifies the current unemployment compensation system allowing it to deal with an ever-increasing segment of the unemployed-the dislocated worker. Through the changes engendered by the WPRS initiatives, the UI system will identify dislocated workers who re at risk of exhausting their unemployment insurance (UI) benefits and links them to appropriate reemployment services in a timely fashion. This two-pronged early intervention strategy is intended to assist identified UI claimants to quickly return to productive, stable employment.
