Wage Record Interchange System (WRIS) 2
The WRIS Advisory Group has developed the WRIS 2 Data Sharing Agreement for wage record data sharing with non-Department of Labor programs. This Agreement was developed from the interest of some states to share aggregate outcomes with partner programs not covered under the terms of the WRIS Data Sharing Agreement. WRIS2 extends the WRIS data sharing model to One-Stop Career Center partner programs such as education programs and other programs not under the jurisdiction of the Department of Labor, as well as other programs. Participation is completely voluntary, as is state participation in WRIS, and is also dependent on the states' laws governing the use of unemployment compensation information. The state map below shows those states currently signed on to WRIS2.
