Workforce Investment Act
The process of determining the amount of time it takes a worker who does not have a disability to perform an operation or an element of an operation using a prescribed method. This amount of time becomes the "standard" against which the productivity of the worker with a disability is compared to determine the commensurate wage.
Goal for Workers with Disabilities
Contractors or subcontractors with a contract of $10,000 or more are subject to this provision. Covered contractors must establish a 7% "workforce utilization goal" for employing individuals with disabilities within each job group. The regulations do, however, allow contractors with fewer than 100 employees to apply the 7% goal to the entire workforce.
