CareerSource Pinellas are obligated to operate all of our programs and activities in a non-discriminatory manner.
Specifically, Section 188 of the Workforce Innovation And Opportunity Act (WIOA) and the accompanying regulations at 29 CFR Part 37 require equal opportunity in the workforce development system, and prohibit discrimination in WIOA-financially assisted programs based on:
• National origin
• Gender indentity
• Gender expression
• Political affiliation or belief
• Sex stereotyping
Section 188 of WIOA applies to all programs and activities offered through the workforce development system and workforce development partners, even if the principal source of financial assistance for a program or activity is a federal department or agency other than USDOL.
In addition to Section 188 of WIOA, there are many other applicable regulations and statutes including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Americans with Disabilities Act of 1999, Florida Civil Rights Act of 1992, etc. that we must uphold the non-discrimination clause contained therein.
