With the release of updated regulations on Equal Employment Opportunity for Apprenticeship programs, the Employment and Training Administration, Office of Apprenticeship is providing technical assistance and training to assist sponsors in meeting the requirements.  This webinar will focus on how sponsors can ensure a discrimination free workplace by recognizing what is and is not considered discrimination.

Description
