The Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) is offering a webinar in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Education for employers, workers, families, and advocates interested in understanding the application of Rehabilitation Act Section 511 and the protections it offers workers employed under Section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
- You can join the free Section 511/Section 14(c) webinar, Understanding Resources and Information Requirements for Workers Under 14(c), on July 20, 2022, from 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm EDT.
WHD also recently published a new Field Assistance Bulletin, and this week published three fact sheets providing new guidance and clarification on these critical protections:
- Fact Sheet #39H: Limitations on the Payment of Subminimum Wages under Rehabilitation Act Section 511;
- Fact Sheet 39H(a): Pre-Employment Requirements for Youth with Disabilities under Rehabilitation Act Section 511; and
- Fact Sheet 39H(b): Limitations on the Payment of Subminimum Wages for All Employees under Rehabilitation Act Section 511.
WHD is committed to protecting workers with disabilities — see their recently published blog, along with the Office of Disability Employment Policy, on Protecting the Rights of Workers with Disabilities and Advancing Competitive Integrated Employment. Additional information on Section 14(c) and Section 511 can be found on the DOL website.
