Proposed Rule Updates Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act

The proposed rule would provide updates to the nondiscrimination and equal opportunity regulations.

The U.S. Labor Department's Civil Rights Center has announced a notice of proposed rulemaking to provide updates to the nondiscrimination and equal opportunity regulations of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. The regulations haven't been updated since 1999.

"Our nation's workforce system should reflect our commitment to diversity and the idea that America works best when we field a full team," said U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez. "Protecting workers from discrimination based on disability, pregnancy, language proficiency, gender identity and other factors is the right thing to do. This proposed rule provides welcome clarity on how to achieve that in the workforce system."

According to a report, the proposed rule would make changes necessary to address developments in equal opportunity and nondiscrimination law, as well as revise procedures and processes.
