The ability to share information to qualified entities has been enhanced as a result of the UI Data Sharing Bill (S5773A), which amended NYS Labor Law Labor Law §537 to allow expanded access to Unemployment Insurance (UI) program data.
Government agencies, including SUNY and CUNY, can now use this data for:
evaluation of program performance including longitudinal outcome analysis;
financial or other analysis required by federal state or local law or regulation;
preparation of reports required by federal state or local law or regulation;
operation of public programs by federal, state or local governmental agencies or their agents, contractors and subcontractors for the purpose of improving the quality or delivery of program services or to create operational efficiencies;
establishment of common case management systems between federal, state or local agencies delivering or supporting workforce services for a shared customer base for the purpose of fostering workforce partnerships, program coordination, inter-agency collaboration, improving program services, or creating operational efficiencies.
