December 20, 2016
Source: LEAD Center

On December 2, 2016, the Department of Labor (DOL) published in the Federal Register a final rule revising the regulations implementing the nondiscrimination and equal opportunity provisions of Section 188 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). The purpose of this policy brief is to provide a summary of the final rule implementing the nondiscrimination and equal opportunity provisions of Section 188 of WIOA from a disability perspective.

Signed by President Obama on July 22, 2014, WIOA supersedes the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) as DOLs primary mechanism for providing financial assistance for a comprehensive system of job training and placement services for adults and eligible youth. Section 188 of WIOA prohibits the exclusion of an individual from participation in, denial of the benefits of, discrimination in, or denial of employment in the administration of or in connection with, any programs and activities funded or otherwise financially assisted in whole or in part under Title I of WIOA because of among other things, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, and disability.
