In 2014, the federal government passed a new law for job seekers known as the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). As part of this law, the Rehabilitation Services Administration, 14c Certificate Holders, schools, and persons with disabilities engaged in, or seeking subminimum wage employment have new responsibilities. These new responsibilities require youth with disabilities and those that serve them, to consider competitive and integrated employment as an option before considering employment that pays subminimum wage. The new responsibilities also require that any individual in subminimum wage employment be provided with career counseling and information/referral services to ensure knowledge of employment options and supports in their community.
