EEO & Registered Apprenticeship Regulations Update!

The U.S. Department of Labor has released the new Equal Employment Opportunity regulations for registered apprenticeship.  Our goal was to encourage the department to ensure access, opportunity, and equity for women, minorities, and people with disabilities in updates. For details, including fact sheets, technical assistance strategies, and the final rule on the new regulations, please visit https://www.doleta.gov/oa/eeo.                    

The National Taskforce on Tradeswomen Issues advocated long and hard with the U.S. Department of Labor to update the rules as they had not been updated since 1978.  You can read the full comments submitted by the Tradeswomen’s Task Force EEO NPRM Recommendations.  Thank you for taking the time to share your stories and comments with the U.S. Department of Labor! Together, over 200 comments were submitted!
