WIOA Section 511 Limitations on the Use of Subminimum Wage

Iowa

~~“Section 511 imposes limitations on employers who hold special wage certificates, commonly known as 14(c) certificates, under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) that must be satisfied before the employers may hire youth with disabilities at subminimum wage or continue to employ individuals with disabilities of any age at the subminimum wage level.
The addition of Section 511 demonstrates the intent that individuals with disabilities, especially youth with disabilities, must be afforded a full opportunity to prepare for, obtain, maintain, advance in, or reenter competitive integrated employment.”
