On November 25, 1993, President Clinton signed into law the Unemployment Insurance Amendments of 1993 (P.L. 103-152) which added Section 303(a)(10) and 303 (j) to the Social Security Act. Both of these new sections contained requirements that all states do the following:
- Identify claimants likely to exhaust their regular UI (Unemployment Insurance) and who will need job search assistance services to make a successful transition to new employment.
- Refer identified claimants to Reemployment Services.
- Collect follow-up information relating to the services provided
- Meets “such other requirements” as the Secretary of Labor determines are appropriate.
Because of these requirements, Wisconsin has been participating in a program called “UI Profiling.”
