- 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;
All in-state UI claimants are required to register for work in the IdahoWorks system upon filing a claim. 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. Wagner-Peyser funded staff provide services to UI claimants every day as a regular part of their duties, and IDOL has placed additional emphasis on ES services to unemployed Idahoans as a strategy to address business needs as the state experiences historic low UI rates.
