Apprenticeship Training Program Issues In the same way that an employer may not discriminate and the educational agency may not work with any that do discriminate, it also has the responsibility to ensure that entities sponsoring apprenticeship programs such as unions do not discriminate.   To be a partner in that discrimination is illegal.  Assignments cannot be made or withheld in an apprenticeship program simply because of the gender, race, color, national origin, or disability of the student.  A written agreement is recommended whereby the apprenticeship program indicates it will not discriminate on these bases. It is necessary to review apprenticeship assurance forms, the assignments of students presently in such programs and the placement process to see whether any such patterns exist.
Schools may not enter into an agreement for the provision or support of apprentice training for students or union members with any labor union or other sponsor that discriminates against its members or applicants on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, or disability.Title VI: 34 CFR 100.3(c) Title IX: 34 CFR 106.31(d) Section 504: 34 CFR 104.11(a)(4) Guidelines VII-A Verification that staff understands this requirement.   Verification that the staff has not honored any request.
