Equal Opportunity Standards and Guidelines


This issuance distributes an updated Workforce Solutions’ Equal Opportunity Standards and Guidelines. This issuance replaces Issuance WS 16-09.


These Equal Opportunity Standards and Guidelines establish local procedures and are not intended to supersede any other applicable laws, regulations, or organizationally specific requirements. Workforce Solutions’ contractor procedures must contain at a minimum these same mandates and can provide additional protections.

The Equal Opportunity Standards and Guidelinesprovide guidance on:

      • Standards for administering Equal Opportunity
      • Serving customers with limited English proficiency
      • Handling disability related inquiries
      • Providing accommodations
      • Processing discrimination complaints
      • Equal Opportunity training requirements



      • Ensure your organization has written procedures in place that implement the Equal Opportunity Standards and Guidelines, as well as all other contractual requirements.
      • Ensure all staff understand the standards and guidelines contained in this issuance.


Staff should ask questions first of their supervisors.  Direct questions to the Board staff through the electronic Issuance Q&A.
