Final Rule: Nondiscrimination and Equal Opportunity Regulations to Implement Section 188 of WIOA

Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On July 23, 2015 (EST)

On July 23, 2015, the Department of Labor published the nondiscrimination and equal opportunity regulations to implement Section 188 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). Under Section 188(e) of WIOA, Congress required the Department to issue regulations implementing Section 188 no later than one year after enactment of WIOA. The Department's publication of this final rule complies with the statutory mandate. This final rule creates a new part in the CFR, which mirrors the regulations published in the CFR in 1999 to implement Section 188 of WIA. The Department has made no substantive changes in this final rule; the changes are technical in nature. This final rule adopts the Department's regulatory scheme for Section 188 of WIA verbatim, with technical revisions to conform to WIOA.

Specifically, the Department has:
-- Replaced references to the ``Workforce Investment Act of 1998'' or ``WIA'' with ``Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act'' or ``WIOA'' to reflect the proper statutory authority; and
-- updated section numbers in the text of the regulation to reflect its new location. To access the Federal Register Notice on
