Our colleagues at the US Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration (ETA) prepared a helpful summary of the issues pertaining to state take-up of $7 billion in Unemployment Compensation modernization funds available under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. With a set of relatively simple and progressive reforms, states can qualify for funds, which will in some instances pay for years' worth of benefits. Even so, some states have yet to implement the changes to bring their unemployment insurance systems in line with the needs of the contemporary workforce. This primer should help all those who are considering making the changes and qualifying for the money. Should your state be interested in finding out whether proposed legislative or regulatory changes will make it qualify for the payments, Office of Unemployment Insurance in ETA is ready to help.
