Title:Do job search rules and reemployment services reduce insured unemployment? PDF Logo
Authors:O'Leary, Christopher J.
Wandner, Stephen A.
Issue Date:2005
Series/Report no.:Upjohn Institute Working Paper 05-112
Abstract:This paper summarizes state unemployment insurance job search policies based on a recent survey of states by the National Association of State Workforce Agencies. It then reviews research results on the effects of reemployment services on durations of insured unemployment. The paper documents how state administrative practices have changed and questions whether these changes may have affected monitoring of claimant compliance with work search requirements. Since state policies on job search and service referral can affect insured durations of unemployment, these policies can also affect the measured total unemployment rate. This paper reflects the opinions of the authors and does not necessarily reflect the positions or viewpoints of the W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research or the U.S. Department of Labor.
