In this session, we will discuss the advantages and best approaches to capturing and reporting supplemental wage information under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). We will then delve into innovative strategies for improving wage data integrity and data collection efficiency. Attendees will have an opportunity to share their state’s unique wage collection approaches and receive clarification on how best to report wages.


The meeting will begin with a short explanation of the guidance contained in several documents by the Departments of Labor (TEGL 26-16 and TEGL 10-16 Change 1).  States that have succeeded in developing and implementing supplemental wage collection policies and processes will share their experiences. An open forum will then be held for states to receive guidance and share promising data collection practices, strategies, and considerations.
