Description: The Worker Profiling and Reemployment Services (WPRS) program allows for the targeting of reemployment services to those most in need of services. The ETA 9048 and ETA 9049 are the only means of tracking the activities in the WPRS program. The ETA 9048 reports on the numbers and flows of claimants at the various stages of the WPRS system from initial profiling through the completion of specific reemployment services. This allows for evaluation and monitoring of the program. The ETA 9049 gives a limited, but inexpensive, look at the reemployment experience of profiled claimants who were referred to services by examining the state's existing wage record files to see in which quarter the referred individuals became employed, what wages they earned and whether they have changed industries.Start Signature
