SUBJECT : Nontraditional Employment for Women (NEW) Act

 

  1. Purpose. To remind States of the responsibility of the State Job Training Coordinating Council (SJTCC) with regard to the Nontraditional Employment for Women Act of 1991.

  2. References. Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) No. 5-91, 5-91 Change 1, and Training and Employment Information Notice (TEIN) No. 47-93.

  3. Background. The Nontraditional Employment for Women Act (Public Law 102-235), which amended the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA), was signed into law on December 12, 1991. In accordance with the Act, pursuant to Section 104(b)(13), each Service Delivery Area (SDA) is to provide information on the extent to which the SDA has met its goals for the training and training-related placement of women in non-traditional employment. Section 122 (b)(6) and (7) state that the SJTCC shall review these reports to take recommendations for technical assistance and corrective action. The SJTCC is also required to prepare a summary of the SDA reports and detail promising service delivery approaches developed in each SDA for the training and placement of women in nontraditional occupations.

  4. Reporting. Departmental records indicate that some States have neglected to submit the reports. The requirements discussed in TEGL No. 5-91, Change 1 and TEIN No. 47-93, on disseminating the summary annually to SDAs, service providers throughout the State, and to the Secretary of Labor, are still in effect. Therefore, States are expected to continue submitting these summary reports to the Department of Labor in compliance with the Act and regulations. Reports must be sent each year no later than May 30.

  5. Action required. State JTPA Liaisons should ensure that SJTCC Summary Reports are submitted on an annual basis to:
