Workforce Investment Act

Job Placement assistance     

The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) is designed to provide an efficient, effective and convenient system for job seekers to find jobs, employers to locate new workers, and for both to have access to information to assist them in developing career and business plans.

Some key principles behind this legislation that went into effect in Iowa on July 1, 2000, and replaced the former Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) include:

·        Streamlining services through a one-stop local delivery system. Customers can go to one place to get answers to their questions.

·        Empowering customers to obtain services needed to enhance their employment opportunities.

·        Improving youth programs through academic and occupational learning.

Some of the core WIA services include help in résumé development, labor market information, filing unemployment insurance claims, job search assistance, free workshops and  information about other Workforce Development Center partners.

Intensive WIA services are available for people who remain unemployed or underemployed after using some or all of the core services listed above. Examples of such services include individual career planning, skill assessments, work readiness training and skill upgrading.

People who do not become self-sufficient after using "intensive" services may qualify for training funds and services through various Workforce Development Center partners, including services for veterans, dislocated workers, welfare recipients, older workers, disabled individuals and those in need of adult education and literacy programs
