The U.S. Department of Labor’s Civil Rights Center (CRC) has announced publication of a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to update the federal regulations for Section 188 WIOA Equal Opportunity and Nondiscrimination Regulations (29 CFR Part 38). 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 race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, political affiliation or belief, and for beneficiaries only, citizenship status, or participation in a program or activity that receives financial assistance under Title I of WIOA. These proposed regulations would update the nondiscrimination and equal opportunity regulations consistent with current law and address its application to current workforce development and workplace practices and issues. Public comments on the proposed regulations must be received on or before March 28, 2016. Instructions for submitting comments can be found in the NPRM in the Federal Register.
