The Department of Labor’s (DOL) Wage and Hour Division (WHD) recently cited a disability service provider over $150,000 in backpay for violating the requirements of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 as they apply to 14(c) program provision.

From the DOL press release:

WIOA requires that individuals with disabilities age 24 or younger complete pre-employment transition services, vocational rehabilitation services, and career counseling, information, and referral services before consideration for work at sub-minimum wages under the FLSA’s Section 14(c). WHD found that the center failed to provide the documentation showing all three of the requirements had been completed by the designated state unit prior to employees being paid a sub-minimum wage.
