Disconnected Youth Form Expiration Guidance
For the Disconnected Youth (DY) WOTC target group, the applicant must fill out the
Department of Labor form called the Youth
Self-Attestation. As some have noted, this document shows an expiration date of
November 30, 2011 (i.e. yesterday). That date, however, refers to the form only. TALX
has learned that the State Workforce Agencies (SWA) were given notice yesterday and
were instructed to continue to accept this form for the DY category until the end
of the year. If WOTC is extended before then, a new DY form will likely be published.
If WOTC is not extended this form will expire and we will have to revisit
this in January. Note that H.R. 2082, the WOTC extension bill, reformulates and extends
DY as “High Risk Youth” as part of its core legislation.
