- Program-Specific Requirements for Wagner-Peyser Program (Employment Services)
All Program-Specific Requirements provided for the WIOA core programs in this section must be addressed for either a Unified or Combined State Plan.
d. 1. Coordination of and provision of labor exchange services for UI claimants as required by the Wagner-Peyser Act;
With both W-P and UI programs delivered by the Idaho Department of Labor, coordination of Wagner-Peyser funds to support UI claimants, and ensuring quality communications between W-P and UI has been one of the agency’s top priorities for several decades.
All in-state UI claimants are required to register for work to obtain UI compensation. After filing a claim for UI, the iUS web-based system provides a link to IdahoWorks, offering immediate access to work registration and the array of labor exchange services available, including links to current employment opportunities for self-referral.
