WIOA Disability-Related Reporting: A Deep Dive into the Participant Individual Record Layout (PIRL)

Thursday, September 24, 2020
3:00pm - 4:00pm ET

Access to quality data makes good policy possible and workforce services accessible for everyone. The Workforce Data Quality Initiative and the LEAD Center webinars on September 17 and 24 showcased leading practices in Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) disability-related reporting. During Part 2 of this two-part webinar series, we shared the definitions and coding for each of the ten disability-related PIRL data elements, why we collect this data, and how it benefits participants and programs. Wisconsin’s Department of Workforce Development highlighted best practices related to their case management system, guidance for their locals, and staff training. The content of this webinar was tailored to local and state workforce staff in charge of reporting, training, and case management systems.
