States maintain flexibility in the information they require from employers on the wage records of their employees. There has been a growing movement among federal and state agencies, researchers, and even businesses to “enhance” Unemployment Insurance wage records (EWR) to include more data, including hours worked and occupational codes, to better assess job market demands, effective workforce training programs, and where college graduates are finding employment.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is exploring new approaches to talent pipeline management including emerging technologies and data standards like EWR to better align education, workforce, and credentialing data with the needs of the new economy. The potential applications of EWR for better labor market information is tremendous.
