Work Study Cooperative Education, Job Placement, and Apprentice Training Issues An agency not only has the responsibility to provide its services in a nondiscriminatory manner, but it also has the responsibility not to foster discrimination by businesses that provide employment or workplace learning sites.  To be a partner in that discrimination is illegal.  Assignments cannot be made or withheld in such programs simply because of the gender, race, national origin, or disability of the student.  It is also illegal to cooperate with an employer that requests students on the basis of gender, race, color, national origin or disability status.  It is recommended that agencies have written agreements whereby the cooperating worksite indicates that they will not discriminate and that they understand the school or college will not work with any business that does.  It is necessary to review these written agreements, the assignments of students presently in such programs and the placement process to see whether any such patterns exist.
Opportunities in work study, cooperative education, and job placement programs are available to all students regardless of race, color, national origin, gender, or disability.Title VI: 34 CFR 100.3(b) Title IX: 34 CFR 106.31(d) Section 504: 34 CFR 104.4(b) Guidelines VII-A Students in the work-study, cooperative education, and job placement programs are representative of the demographics of the school or program. If there is disparity, the institution provides a legitimate, nondiscriminatory rationale.

A recipient that assists employers and prospective employers in making employment opportunities available to any of its students must ensure that the employer does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, or disability in recruitment, hiring, placement, assignment to work tasks, hours of employment, levels of responsibility, and pay. Title VI: 34 CFR 100.3(b) Title IX: 34 CFR 106.38 Section 504: 34 CFR 104.46(b) Guidelines VII-A Workplace agreements contain an assurance of nondiscrimination that is signed by both the employer and the agency. The recipient does not honor any employer’s requests for students who are free of disabilities or for students of a particular race, color, national origin, or gender.

Comment

HCC does not work with employers to limit the employment opportunities of our students through discrimination on the basis of race, color, gender, national origin, or disability in recruitment, hiring, placement, assignment to work tasks, hours of employment, levels of responsibility and pay.  The College’s major direct relationships with employers and students come through our affiliation and internship agreements, and those agreements do require employers to act in a responsible, non-discriminatory manner as seen in the agreements.   HCC does not honor any employer’s requests for students who are free of disabilities or for students of a particular race, color, national origin, or gender.
