Title: Rescission of Rule Implementing the Nondiscrimination and Equal Opportunity Requirements of the Job Training Partnership Act of 1982 
Abstract:

The purpose of this action is to rescind the regulations implementing the nondiscrimination and equal opportunity provisions of the Job Training Partnership Act of 1982, as amended (JTPA), found at 29 CFR part 34.  Section 167 of the JTPA prohibited discrimination on the grounds of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, political affiliation or belief, and for beneficiaries only, citizenship status or participation in a JTPA-funded program or activity.  JTPA was repealed by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA).  WIA in turn was superseded by the bipartisan Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) in 2014.  Section 188 of WIOA prohibits discrimination because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, political affiliation or belief, and for beneficiaries only, citizenship status or participation in a program or activity that receives financial assistance under title I of WIOA.  The Department issued the regulations implementing WIOA section 188 at 29 CFR part 38 on December 2, 2016. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and the Direct Final Rule published in the Federal Register on September 26, 2018 (83 FR 48576 and 83 FR 48542) and adopts RIN: 1291-AA39 in the Unified Agenda.
