A new requirement for the Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessment (RESEA) program states RESEA funds must be used for "service delivery strategies demonstrated to reduce the average number of weeks participants receive benefits by improving participant employment outcomes,” according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

LEAP.PNGUnemployment Insurance Program Letter No. 07-19 says RESEAs must use evidence-based strategies where they exist. “The goal is to ensure that each state employs RESEA interventions and service delivery strategies that, based on rigorous evaluations, improve employment outcomes and reduce benefit duration or that the intervention or service delivery strategy are being evaluated to determine their effectiveness in achieving these goals.”

In a “high causal evidence” study cited by the USDOL, only one tool—Layoff-to-Employment Action Planner (LEAP)—is described. LEAP is published by Career Action Resources, LLC.

A new study for the U.S. Department of Labor concludes that one-on-one, staff-assisted career services at American Job Centers are a positive investment for improving customer employment and pay.

Researchers followed more than 34,000 study participants who received different service levels.

According to the USDOL, “The final report found that intensive services (generally similar to individualized career services under WIOA) increased employment, wages, receipt of a credential, the likelihood of fringe benefits, and hours worked....The cost-benefit analysis indicates that intensive (career) services are a positive investment from the standpoint of customers, taxpayers, and society as a whole.”

The report summary, titled Providing Public Workforce Services to Job Seekers, can be read here.
