Equal Opportunity is the Law
It is against the law for this recipient of Federal financial assistance to discriminate on the following bases: Against any individual in the United States, on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions, sex stereotyping, transgender status, and gender identity), national origin (including limited English proficiency), age, disability, or political affiliation or belief, or, against any beneficiary of, applicant to, or participant in programs financially assisted under Title I of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, on the basis of the individual's citizenship status or participation in any WIOA Title I-financially assisted program or activity.
The recipient must not discriminate in any of the following areas:
Deciding who will be admitted, or have access, to any WIOA Title I-financially assisted program or activity;
providing opportunities in, or treating any person with regard to, such a program or activity; or
making employment decisions in the administration of, or in connection with, such a program or activity.
Recipients of federal financial assistance must take reasonable steps to ensure that communications with individuals with disabilities are as effective as communications with others. This means that, upon request and at no cost to the individual, recipients are required to provide appropriate auxiliary aids and services to qualified individuals with disabilities.
In accordance with 29 CFR 38.9 (g)(3), Limited English Proficient (LEP) individuals seeking access to information about WIOA programs offered through the Western Wisconsin Workforce Development Board and its American Job Center partners, will receive language assistance in all communications of vital information. Vital information is defined as information, whether written, oral, or electronic, that is necessary for an individual to understand how to obtain any aid, benefit, service and/or training; necessary for an individual to obtain any aid, benefit, service and/or training; or required by law.
An interpreter, as well as the availability of free language assistance such as rulebooks; written tests that do not access English language competency, but rather assess competency for a particular license, job or skill for which English proficiency is not required; and letters or notices that require a response from the beneficiary or applicant, participant or employee will be provided to all LEP individuals at no cost to the individual.
WIOA Title I-financially assisted programs or activities or offerings provided by E3 Works are supported with federal funding from the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). E3 Works is an equal opportunity employer/program.
