The U.S. Department of Labor is offering free training to assist agencies with 14(c) compliance. The next training will be held on August 4th, 2016 in Bowling Green, Kentucky from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM CDT. Staff from INARF will be attending and we also encourage anyone else to attend to take advantage of this training. Tickets are very limited and are going fast so INARF encourages you to register as soon as possible. For your convenience, the description is listed below as well as a link to the website for registration. Please contact Asher Weaver: firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-634-4957 with any additional questions.
“The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division will offer free seminars to assist employers and community rehabilitation programs (CRPs) in complying with section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Guardians and family members of workers with disabilities are invited and encouraged to attend as well.
These compliance seminars will cover a range of topics including the certification process, performing prevailing wage determinations and conducting time studies. The Department’s online calculators will be featured. Discussions will also include areas where WHD staff have found compliance problems in past years, such as common errors made by section 14(c) certificate holders, calculating commensurate wages and accurately tracking hours worked. Seminars will also address impacts of Executive Order 13658, which establishes a minimum wage for certain federal contractors, as well as the provisions of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) that restrict the payment of a subminimum wage.”
