Integration of Trade Services for Dislocated Workers: A Comprehensive Guide

D-200.1:

Co-enrollment

Note: If Rapid Reemployment is not possible, continue with a

comprehensive assessment, develop an Individual Employment

Plan (IEP), and refer the dislocated worker to training or OJT, if

appropriate.

Individual

Employment

Plan

IEP is a tool that allows you to work in partnership with the Tradecertified

worker to identify an occupation in demand that can meet

the 80 percent wage replacement goal and to develop a

reemployment plan. An IEP must:

• be complete and thorough;

• outline a reasonable path to reemployment;

• include labor market information (LMI) regarding targeted and

demand occupations and wage information by occupation, as

well as length of training;

• identify specific occupations for the Trade-certified worker that

will meet an 80 percent wage replacement goal;

• identify barriers for the selected occupation, and clearly

establish how training will remove those barriers (Participants

must be given the widest range of choices of demand

occupations that will meet the 80 percent wage replacement

goal, so that they can make an informed decision regarding

their selection.); and

• ensure that, if the participant selects an occupation that will not

meet the 80 percent wage replacement goal, the case notes and

the IEP reflect the participant’s decision.

In selecting an occupation, the focus must be on local employers’

job requirements. Be certain to connect training elements in the

IEP to the specific occupation.
