The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Title IB participants may be excluded from primary indicators of performance for any of the following reasons that may preclude them from participating in services or entering employment.
These exclusions apply to all primary indicators of performance for all Title IB Adult, Dislocated Worker, and Youth programs, unless otherwise noted.
Exclusions from performance are made for a WIOA Title IB participant that exits the program because of any of the following:
becomes incarcerated in a correctional institution or has become a resident of an institution or facility providing twenty-four (24)-hour support such as a hospital or treatment center during the course of receiving services as a participant;
receiving medical treatment and that treatment is expected to last longer than ninety (90) days and precludes entry into unsubsidized employment or continued participation in the program; and
called to active duty for at least ninety (90) days as a member of the National Guard or other reserve military unit of the armed forces.
All WIOA Title IB participants are excluded from performance if they are deceased during program participation or after exit during applicable reporting periods.
A Title IB Youth participant is excluded from performance if they are in the foster care system and exit the program because the participant has moved from the local workforce innovation area as part of such a program or system.
If a participant is exited due to a medical or disability exclusion, care must be taken not to disclose the medical or disability-related information.
Information shall be collected in a separate file and must not disclose in case notes the reason for exit.
For Title IB programs, eligibility is determined at the time an individual becomes a participant and such eligibility is not revisited during the individual’s participation in the program. As such, there are no exclusions from performance if it is later determined that they have not met the program’s eligibility criteria.
There is no prohibition against providing follow-up services after exit due to exclusionary reasons.
For additional exclusions within each primary indicators of performance, reference the definition, methodology, operational parameters and other information found in each performance indicator section of the policy.
