 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'This 2-year project will examine the efficacy of reemployment programs in helping displaced workers find jobs and improve their labour market outcomes during periods of high unemployment. For this purpose, we will examine the effectiveness of reemployment programs implemented by two US states, Florida and Nevada, from 2009 through 2010, a period of high unemployment. Each of these programs: 1) used random assignment to determine which new Unemployment Insurance (UI) recipients would receive reemployment services, 2) provided a unique combination of services to program participants, and 3) collected data that provide information on the characteristics and outcomes of UI recipients. The random assignment design of these programs combined with the fact that they provided a diverse set of services provide a unique opportunity to produce reliable evidence on the effectiveness of various reemployment strategies during periods of high unemployment. This project will use Florida and Nevada administrative data to address the following research objectives: • What is the effect of reemployment programs in helping displaced workers improve their labour market outcomes during periods of high unemployment? • Are reemployment programs effective in reducing the use of UI benefits? • Do program impacts vary across key socioeconomic groups? • Do reemployment programs lead to significant savings for the UI Trust Fund and, if so, do these exceed program costs? • What reemployment strategies are most effective in improving the labour market outcomes of displaced workers and in producing savings for the UI program? The findings of this project will provide important insights in the efficacy of various reemployment strategies and help EU policymakers identify strategies that are likely to be effective in improving the labour market outcomes of displaced workers during periods of high unemployment.'
