Maryland Policy Issuances


Maryland's Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation is currently posting electronic Policy Issuances (PI's) in Word format (download Word viewer for free) and PDF format (download Adobe Acrobat for free) for agency review and comments.

Policy Issuances have replaced the previous guidance format, Workforce Investment Field Instructions (WIFIs), as of April 4, 2014. If you are searching for guidance disseminated prior to this effective date, please refer to the WIFI database. Unless the previously disseminated WIFI has been rescinded with a new PI, it will remain in effect through the duration outlined in the original guidance.
