The purpose of follow-up services is to increase the likelihood of continued employment, retention, and earnings of a participant that has obtained unsubsidized employment.1 Therefore, DWD-DET has determined that "placed in unsubsidized employment" does not include placement in temporary or part-time jobs unless the employment relates to the participant's occupational goals as outlined in their Individual Employment Plan (IEP).
Follow-up services in the Title I Adult Program and the Dislocated Worker Program may begin immediately following placement into unsubsidized employment if the participant is expected not to receive any future services other than follow-up services. 2
DWD-DET requires career planners to complete an IEP review before exit, to determine if the employment aligns with the participant's occupational goals and current career and training services progress. For example:
- Does the employment lead to economic self-sufficiency?
- Is the participant still engaged in the program?
- Are they currently receiving services, or are future services planned?
Career planners must document the IEP review in ASSET Services and the outcome in ASSET Customer Notes. NOTE: If the career planner cannot reach the participant to capture this information, they must enter the ASSET service and use the completion code "will never start" along with a Case Note documenting the outreach attempt.
