Have you attended a WIOA Counseling Session? Here are details!

Letters will be sent out as a follow up regarding the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).  As described in previous communications, this act requires that each person who wants to continue working on special minimum wage jobs (as most of our in-house contract is paid), they must complete a counseling session with the Metro Centers for Independent Living  (MCIL).  The focus of these sessions is to explain to the person and/or guardian the benefits of competitive, integrated employment.  Once this session is completed, whether the person does or does not choose competitive employment as their goal, they will be able to continue to work on special minimum wage jobs.

You may be receiving a letter because TSE has not received notification that the counseling session has been completed for you.  This MUST be completed no later than July 22, 2017.  As of that date, TSE will not be able to offer special minimum wage work to you until you have completed the process.

MCIL is hosting a number of public sessions that you can attend.
I am urging you to attend an MCIL session as soon as possible.
If you do not plan to attend because you do not want special minimum wage work offered, please contact me via email (drietz@tse-inc.org) or phone (651-489-2595 x214).  You will be removed from any further communications regarding this process.
While TSE does not have direct responsibility to coordinate the meetings with MCIL, we do have a responsibility to know for whom this process is complete. As of July 22, we will discontinue special minimum wage work for anyone who has not completed this process. I’m sure you appreciate the enormity of this task of monitoring the process.  We would like to wrap this up as soon as possible so that we can devote our attention to other pressing issues.
