Comment Request for Information Collection for the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Adult and Dislocated Worker Programs Gold Standard Evaluation (WIA Evaluation); New Collection
Document Number: 2012-15417
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-06-25
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
The Department of Labor (Department), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) [44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)]. This program helps to ensure that required data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. The Department notes that a Federal agency cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it is approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB control number, and the public is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Also, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information if the collection of information does not display a currently valid OMB control number (see 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6). This data collection request consists of follow-up surveys for a sample of WIA customers participating in the WIA Evaluation and data for use in estimating the costs of WIA services and training received by sample group members. In addition, it includes data for a supplemental study to learn about services to veterans, the services they receive, and their outcomes. Since the WIA Evaluation is excluding veterans from the net-impact study, this supplemental study provides the opportunity to analyze veterans' experiences in the 28 WIA Evaluation sites.

Announcement Regarding States Triggering “Off” in the Emergency Unemployment Compensation 2008 Program and the Federal-State Extended Benefits Program
Document Number: 2012-14174
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-06-12
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
Announcement regarding states triggering ``off'' in the Emergency Unemployment Compensation 2008 (EUC08) Program and the Federal-State Extended Benefits (EB) Program. The U.S. Department of Labor (Department) produces trigger notices indicating which states qualify for both EB and EUC08 benefits, and provides the beginning and ending dates of payable periods for each qualifying state. The trigger notices covering state eligibility for these programs can be found at: http://ows.doleta.gov/unemploy/claims arch.asp. The following changes have occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding states' EB and EUC08 trigger status: Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on March 30, 2012, the three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate in Connecticut fell below the 8.0% rate required to remain ``on'' in a high unemployment period (HUP) within the EB program. Claimants in this state were eligible for up to 20 weeks of benefits through April 21, 2012, but starting April 22, 2012, the maximum potential entitlement in the EB program for this state decreased from 20 weeks to 13 weeks. Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on March 30, 2012, as well as revisions to prior year data released on February 29, 2012, Alabama, Delaware, Georgia, Indiana, Maryland, and Washington no longer meet one of the criteria to remain ``on'' in EB, i.e., having their current three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate be at least 110% of one of the rates from a comparable period in one of the three prior years. This triggered these states ``off'' EB and the end of the payable period for these states in the EB program was the week ending April 21, 2012. Although some states have triggered ``off'' of EB, they are currently triggered ``on'' to Tier 4 of the EUC08 program. Under Public Law 112-96, new Tier 4 claimants in states that are triggered ``off'' in the EB program, but are triggered ``on'' in Tier 4 of the EUC08 program, may be eligible for augmentation from a maximum potential duration of 6 weeks to a maximum potential duration of 16 weeks for a limited period of time. Details on this potential benefit augmentation can be found at http://wdr.doleta.gov/directives/corr doc.cfm?DOCN=5271 starting at the bottom of Page 4. States that were affected by this provision were Arizona, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Oregon, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, and Tennessee. In addition, Georgia and Indiana were eligible to provide for up to 16 weeks of Tier 4 benefits for new Tier 4 claimants starting April 22. Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on March 30, 2012, the three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate for Virginia fell below the threshold to remain ``on'' in Tier 3 of the EUC08 program. As a result, the current maximum potential entitlement in this state in the EUC08 program decreased from 47 weeks to 34 weeks. The week ending April 21, 2012 was the last week in which EUC08 claimants in this state could exhaust Tier 2, and establish Tier 3 eligibility. Under the phase-out provisions, claimants in this state can receive any remaining entitlement they have in Tier 3 after April 21, 2012. Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on March 30, 2012, the three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rates for Tennessee and Washington fell below the threshold to remain ``on'' in Tier 4 of the EUC08 program. As a result, the current maximum potential entitlement in these states for the EUC08 program decreased from 53 weeks to 47 weeks. The week ending April 21, 2012 was the last week in which EUC08 claimants in these states could exhaust Tier 3, and establish Tier 4 eligibility. Under the phase-out provisions, claimants in these states can receive any remaining entitlement they have in Tier 4 after April 21, 2012.
Announcement Regarding States Triggering “Off” in the Emergency Unemployment Compensation 2008 Program and the Federal-State Extended Benefits Program
Document Number: 2012-14172
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-06-12
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
Announcement regarding states triggering ``off'' in the Emergency Unemployment Compensation 2008 (EUC08) Program and the Federal-State Extended Benefits (EB) Program. The U.S. Department of Labor (Department) produces trigger notices indicating which states qualify for both EB and EUC08 benefits, and provides the beginning and ending dates of payable periods for each qualifying state. The trigger notices covering state eligibility for these programs can be found at: http://ows.doleta.gov/unemploy/claims arch.asp. The following changes have occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding states' EB and EUC08 trigger status: Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on April 20, 2012, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Texas no longer meet one of the criteria to remain ``on'' in EB, i.e., having their current three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate be at least 110% of one of the rates from a comparable period in one of the three prior years. This triggers these states ``off'' EB and the end of the payable period in the EB program for these states will be the week ending May 12, 2012. Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on April 20, 2012, the three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate for Indiana fell below the threshold to remain ``on'' in Tier 4 of the EUC08 program. As a result, the current maximum potential entitlement in this state in the EUC08 program will decrease from 53 weeks to 47 weeks. The week ending May 12, 2012 will be the last week in which EUC claimants in this state can exhaust Tier 3, and establish Tier 4 eligibility. Under the phase-out provisions, claimants in this state can receive any remaining entitlement they have in Tier 4 after May 12, 2012. Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on April 20, 2012, the three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate for Oklahoma fell below the threshold to remain ``on'' in Tier 3 of the EUC08 program. As a result, the current maximum potential entitlement in this state in the EUC08 program will decrease from 47 weeks to 34 weeks. The week ending May 12, 2012 will be the last week in which EUC claimants in this state can exhaust Tier 2, and establish Tier 3 eligibility. Under the phase-out provisions, claimants in this state can receive any remaining entitlement they have in Tier 3 after May 12, 2012. With data released for the 13 week period ending April 21, 2012, Alaska's 13-week Insured Unemployment Rate (IUR) has fallen below the 6% threshold to remain ``on'' in EB and Tier 4 of EUC. This triggers Alaska ``off'' EB and the end of the payable period for this state in the EB program will be the week ending May 12, 2012. This same data also causes Alaska to fall below the threshold to remain ``on'' in Tier 4 of the EUC08 program. As a result, the current maximum potential entitlement in this state in the EUC08 program will decrease from 53 weeks to 47 weeks. The week ending May 12, 2012 will be the last week in which EUC claimants in this state can exhaust Tier 3, and establish Tier 4 eligibility. Under the phase-out provisions, claimants in this state can receive any remaining entitlement they have in Tier 4 after May 12, 2012. Claimants in states that are triggered ``on'' to Tier 4 of the EUC08 program, but not triggered ``on'' to EB, may be eligible for augmentation of their Tier 4 entitlement from a maximum potential duration of 6 weeks to a maximum potential duration of 16 weeks. Details on this can be found at the bottom of the page for this link: http://wdr.doleta.gov/directives/corr_doc.cfm?DOCN=5271. States currently affected by this provision are Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Oregon, Puerto Rico, and South Carolina. States that will be eligible to provide for up to 16 weeks of Tier 4 benefits for new Tier 4 claimants starting May 13 are California, Florida, Illinois, and North Carolina.
Announcement Regarding States Triggering “On” or “Off” in the Emergency Unemployment Compensation 2008 (EUC08) Program and the Federal-State Extended Benefits (EB) Program
Document Number: 2012-13836
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-06-07
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
Announcement regarding states triggering ``on'' or ``off'' in the Emergency Unemployment Compensation 2008 (EUC08) program and the Federal-State Extended Benefits (EB) Program. The U.S. Department of Labor (Department) produces trigger notices indicating which states qualify for both EB and EUC08 benefits, and provides the beginning and ending dates of payable periods for each qualifying state. The trigger notices covering state eligibility for these programs can be found at: http://ows.doleta.gov/unemploy/claims arch.asp. The following changes have occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding states' EB and EUC08 trigger status: Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on May 18, 2012, the District of Columbia, New York, and West Virginia no longer meet one of the criteria to remain ``on'' in EB, i.e., having their current three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate be at least 110% of one of the rates from a comparable prior period in one of the three prior years. This triggers these states ``off'' EB and the end of the payable period for these states in the EB program will be the week ending June 9, 2012. Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on May 18, 2012, the three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate in Idaho fell below the 8.0% trigger threshold required to remain ``on'' in a high unemployment period (HUP) within the EB program. Claimants in this state will remain eligible for up to 20 weeks of benefits through June 9, 2012, but starting June 10, 2012, the maximum potential entitlement in the EB program for this state will decrease from 20 weeks to 13 weeks. Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on May 18, 2012, the estimated three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate for New York rose to meet the 8.5% trigger threshold to trigger ``on'' in Tier 4 of the EUC 2008 program. The 13 week mandatory ``on'' period in New York for Tier 4 of the EUC program will begin June 4, 2012. As a result, the current maximum potential entitlement in the EUC program will increase from 47 weeks to 53 weeks. States that are triggered ``on'' to Tier 4 of the EUC08 program, but not triggered ``on'' to EB, may be eligible to augment the entitlement for new Tier 4 claimants with a maximum potential duration of 16 weeks. This ability to augment the entitlement of new Tier 4 claimants concluded with the week ending May 26, 2012. Starting May 27, 2012, all claimants exhausting Tier 3 who establish entitlement in Tier 4 will only be eligible for up to 6 weeks of benefits. Claimants who had previously been augmented with 16 weeks of benefits can continue to draw those benefits. States currently affected by this provision are Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oregon, Puerto Rico, and South Carolina. Under Public Law 112-96, the current total unemployment rate trigger thresholds used to establish state eligibility for the tiers of EUC are scheduled to change. Currently, and through the week ending May 26, 2012, Tiers 1 and 2 do not require any specific TUR trigger rate, Tier 3 requires a 6% TUR trigger rate and Tier 4 requires an 8.5% TUR trigger rate. The current trigger notices reflect state eligibility under these TUR trigger rate thresholds. With the week beginning May 27, the following changes will take effect: Tier 1 will continue to be open to all claimants with EUC eligibility, with no changes. Tier 2 will require states to have at least a 6% TUR trigger rate. Tier 3 will require states to have at least a 7% TUR trigger rate. Tier 4 will require states to have at least a 9% TUR trigger rate. Because new unemployment rates will not be released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics before May 27, when Public Law 112-96 causes changes in the rates necessary to be ``on'' in certain Tiers of EUC, states can now know with certainty if they will have an ``off'' indicator in a Tier of EUC with the week ending June 2. States that will be below the rate necessary to remain on in Tier 2 under the new 6% trigger threshold are: IA, MN, NE., NH, ND, OK, SD, UT, VT, VA, and WY. These states will have an ``off'' indicator in EUC Tier 2 with the week ending June 2, 2012. The week ending June 23, 2012 will be the last week in which EUC claimants in those states could exhaust Tier 1 and establish eligibility in Tier 2. Under the phase-out provisions, claimants could receive any remaining entitlement they have in Tier 2 after June 23, 2012. States that will be below the rate necessary to remain on in Tier 3 under the new 7% trigger threshold are: DE, HI, KS, MD, MA, MT, WV, and WI. These states will have an ``off'' indicator in EUC Tier 3 with the week ending June 2, 2012. The week ending June 23, 2012 will be the last week in which EUC claimants in those states could exhaust Tier 2 and establish eligibility in Tier 3. Under the phase-out provisions, claimants could receive any remaining entitlement they have in Tier 3 after June 23, 2012. States that will be below the rate necessary to remain on in Tier 4 under the new 9% trigger threshold are: AZ, IL, KY, MI, and OR. These states will have an ``off'' indicator in EUC Tier 4 with the week ending June 2, 2012. The week ending June 23, 2012 will be the last week in which EUC claimants in those states could exhaust Tier 3 and establish eligibility in Tier 4. Under the phase-out provisions, claimants could receive any remaining entitlement they have in Tier 4 after June 23, 2012.
