WORKER PROFILING AND REEMPLOYMENT SERVICES TEST STATE: DEVELOPMENT OF THE MARYLAND MODEL

 

Attached is a copy of the above paper. As part of its role in providing technical assistance to States in implementing worker profiling and reemployment services systems as mandated by Public Law 103-152, the Department of Labor (DOL) and the Maryland Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) recently completed the development of an operational profiling system. Maryland was used as a "test State" to prove that the concepts contained in the DOL Field Memorandum 35-94 can be developed into an operational system.

The paper focuses on implementation of a profiling mechanism, based on the use of a statistical model and detailed programming specifications. The profiling requirements document is included as an appendix to the paper. The Maryland agency intends to begin using the developed system on an operational basis during the summer of 1994.

This paper is highly recommended for dissemination to Regional Office staff and State staff engaged in the implementation of worker profiling and reemployment services systems.

Inquiries regarding this paper and DOL technical assistance may ba addressed to Wayne Zajac, 202-219-5616. Questions on the Maryland profiling mechanism and implementation effort may be addressed to Carol Walter, Maryland Department of employment and Economic Development (DEED), 410-333-5070
