Indiana PYs 2020-2023 Published Approved

Wagner-Peyser Act

Located in:

e. 4. D. Providing State merit staff outreach workers professional development activities to ensure they are able to provide high quality services to both jobseekers and employers

Current Narrative:

State merit outreach staff have two mandatory annual trainings, human trafficking and sexual harassment, followed by ongoing in-house professional development trainings throughout the year. The Business Engagement team provides training to the outreach staff on current employer grants and initiatives that can assist agricultural employers. The Business Engagement team also shares access to the Customer Relationship Manager System (CRM) and other employer related items. Employer service training will be provided to all outreach and advocacy staff to connect and engage with the agricultural community.

In light of the recent changes to the Wagner-Peyser regulations that permits states to have increased staffing flexibility, Indiana will evaluate potential changes to staffing models and the state merit requirement over the next fiscal year.
