Worker Adjustment Assistance: A Guide to Local Options. Issues in Training and Employment.
Rothstein, Frances R.
This issue paper, intended to stimulate discussion within the employment and training community, was developed in response to the Economic Dislocation and Worker Adjustment Assistance Act (EDWAAA), the recently passed amendments to the Title III dislocated worker program of the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA). The fact sheets and option paper that make up this document represent efforts to provide local government officials with information about the changes in the law and the kinds of choices available to service delivery area administrators, local elected officials, and private industry councils as they begin to negotiate with their governors about their role in delivering Worker Adjustment Assistance Program services. The first part of the paper contains: Worker Adjustment Assistance Program fact sheets covering substate area designation; substate grantee designation; distribution of funds; federal, state, and local dislocated worker services; eligibility; and state council composition and responsibilities. The second part of the paper discusses: (1) local roles, options, and issues in the early implementation phase of EDWAAA; (2) designation of substate areas and substate grantees; and (3) other issues that affect local options and program outcomes.
