WIOA also emphasizes employer engagement to help employers provide work-based learning for people with disabilities, and establishes new requirements for ensuring collaboration among relevant stakeholders at federal and state levels.

On July 22, President Barack Obama signed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) into law. This new law replaces the outdated Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and represents a renewed commitment to workforce development with an eye to the future through innovation and support for individual and national economic growth. It is aimed at increasing opportunities, particularly for those facing barriers to employment, and invests in the important connection between education and career preparation. WIOA will become effective on July 1, 2015, however, the act includes several provisions that become effective on other dates.

Visit the Department of Labor website for more information on the Act.
