In Iowa we consider OJT to be work training/work relief and excluded from 
UC so the individual is eligible for TAA and UC.

[wiaattorneys] Trade Act training Question

Have any of you who are involved with Trade Act dealt with the following 
We are getting questions, from the field  relating to individuals in TAA 
approved training programs that include periods of time of paid "work 
experience" embedded in the training.   Are these claimants eligible for 
UC and/or TRA during these weeks of paid work experience?  Is this part of 
the "training" or "other scheduled activities", or would these individuals 
be ineligible for these weeks (even if only working a limited number of 
hours) for the week under the prohibition of payments while on OJT? 
Do you see any other issues and solutions? 
Thanks JP
