WIAC August Meeting Series Update:

Recommendations to the Department of Labor

The Workforce Information Advisory Council (WIAC) finalized recommendations to the Biden Administration on August 31, 2021, that, if implemented, would enhance the Workforce and Labor Market Information (WLMI) system. Lesley Hirsch, the New Jersey Department of Labor Assistant Commissioner of Research and Information stated that the WIAC recommendations are of “critical importance to securing the workforce and labor market information infrastructure, advancing the field, and serving the needs of key constituencies.”

Many WIAC members agreed that improving data practices within the Department of Labor could facilitate economic recovery by optimizing decision-making. With the recommendations in development even before the pandemic, the economic disruption caused by COVID 19 has created new opportunities for making progress in moving them forward.
