Promising Practices in Achieving Universal Access and Equal Opportunity

The US Department of Labor (DOL) has developed “Promising Practices in Achieving Universal Access and Equal Opportunity: A Section 188 Disability Reference Guide” to assist AJCs by providing promising practices that correlate with specific nondiscrimination requirements in Section 188 and the current Section 188 regulations. The promising practices are not necessarily mandatory in every case under Section 188 or the regulations but may be considered by AJCs for the purpose of ensuring universal access and equal opportunity.

On December 2,, DOL published the final rule revising the regulations implementing the nondiscrimination and equal opportunity provisions of Section 188 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). A policy brief from the LEAD Center provides a summary of the final rule from a disability perspective . The brief highlight select provisions in order to assist people with disabilities and other interested stakeholders better understand the policies included in the lengthy rule.
