Title 43 - PENSIONS AND RETIREMENT AND UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION
Section 43:21-4.1 - Worker profiling system; notice to applicant of benefits, services available
Section: 43:21-4.1: Worker profiling system; notice to applicant of benefits, services available
2. a. There is established a worker profiling system for the purpose of determining which new claimants for regular benefits are likely to exhaust benefits and therefore have the greatest need for reemployment services to make a successful transition to new employment. Information obtained from the profiling system shall be used in making referrals for reemployment services and may be used in making referrals to other services and benefits, but no individual shall be excluded from seeking or receiving reemployment services or other services or benefits because the individual is not among those determined to be likely to exhaust benefits, unless the exclusion is specifically required by federal law. Nor shall an individual be required to participate, as a condition for receiving regular benefits, in any employment and training services because the individual is among those determined to be likely to exhaust benefits, unless that participation by the individual is specifically required by federal law. A characteristic of an individual shall not be used in making a determination regarding whether the individual is likely to exhaust benefits unless it is demonstrated to be an actual indicator of a high likelihood that benefits will be exhausted.
b. The division shall provide each individual who applies for unemployment compensation with an initial interview which includes:
(1) Notice of the benefits and services available pursuant to the provisions of this 1992 amendatory and supplementary act and the provisions of the "1992 New Jersey Employment and Workforce Development Act," P.L.1992, c.43 (C.34:15D-1 et al.), P.L.1992, c.47 (C.43:21-57 et al.) and the "Job Training Partnership Act," Pub.L. 97-300 (29 U.S.C. 1501 et seq.) and of the tuition waivers available pursuant to P.L.1983, c.469 (C.18A:64-13.1 et seq.) and P.L.1983, c.470 (C.18A:64A-23.1 et seq.); and
(2) A review of the individual's rights and responsibilities with respect to the unemployment compensation, including an explanation of the appeal process and of the worker profiling system and its possible impact on the individual.
