Early STAWRS research confirmed that a single model law would be exceedingly complex and difficult to draft and implement.
The HWC/ITW Report was released in January 2001 and is available on the STAWRS Web site.
To advance this objective, STAWRS has met with several organizations regarding development of a single harmonized wage code.
While STAWRS pursues support for HWC implementation, it continues its research and report development efforts.
In addition, STAWRS is studying a sampling of eight states to determine the effect on state revenue of implementing the THWC.
Finally, STAWRS has set a tentative release date for the HWC/UI Report at mid-S Summer 2001.
STAWRS has set ambitious goals for its HWC project, from establishing new partnerships to completing complex research and publishing reports.
