SUBJECT : A Guide to Well-Developed Services for Dislocated Workers

  1. Purpose. To notify the States of the availability of a new publication -- A Guide to Well-Developed Services for Dislocated Workers. The report details results of an evaluation study conducted for the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) by Social Policy Research Associates and SRI International, of Menlo Park, Calif., and by Berkeley Planning Associates, of Oakland, Calif.

  2. Background. This study is based on the findings of researchers who traveled to 70 substate areas and 10 special projects in 24 different States to observe the design, organization, and provision of services to dislocated workers from Program Year 89 through Program Year 92. Findings should improve communications among program operators and help them to assess the responsive-ness of their services. The report includes examples of services developed in a variety of environments.

    This guide is intended for EDWAA practitioners -- including State and substate area policymakers, program planners, and providers serving dislocated workers -- as a vehicle for sharing information about effective strategies to serve dislocated workers. It provides information about early intervention services, assessment and career exploration, supportive services, job search, crisis adjustment, relocation services, classroom and on-the-job training, and specific organizational issues.

  3. Action Required. State Worker Adjustment Liaisons should distribute the reports to appropriate officials within the State.

  4. Inquiries. Direct inquiries to Mary Vines (202) 219-7664 or to the appropriate ETA Regional Administrator.

  5. Attachment. One copy of Report to JTPA Liaisons

  6. Separate Cover. Bulk supplies of the report to State Worker Adjustment Liaisons
