The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) published Field Assistance Bulletin 2022-4, which provides additional guidance and clarification on the application of the Rehabilitation Act Section 511 and the protections it offers workers and youth employed under a Section 14(c) certificate. The bulletin clarifies Section 511 requirements to maximize opportunities to achieve competitive integrated employment, the timing of these requirements, documentation to be kept by an employer and whether this documentation can be used by multiple employers. To provide additional guidance, WHD intends to publish new updated fact sheets regarding Section 511 and its enforcement policies.
