Iowa Apprenticeship Training: What you need to know

An apprenticeship is an on-the-job training program that combines classroom instruction with work performance under the close supervision of a skilled and experienced journeyworker in a craft, trade, or profession. Iowa does not have its own state apprenticeship law; therefore, the federal Office of Apprenticeship (OA) governs apprenticeship in Iowa. OA provides employers with technical assistance and information; issues standards; and monitors, registers, and cancels apprenticeship programs. There is detailed information on the federal apprenticeship law.

The Iowa Civil Rights Act prohibits employers with four or more employees from discriminating in any way against an apprentice on the basis of age, race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, or disability, unless the characteristic is a bona fide occupational qualification. The Act's provision on age discrimination does not apply if the applicant or apprentice is under the age of 18 (unless considered by law to be an adult) or is over the age of 45 (IA Code Sec. 216.6).
Federal law compared. The federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibits employers with 20 or more employees from discriminating on the basis of age in apprenticeship programs. The ADEA protects applicants and employees who are the age of 40 or older.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability. Title VII and the ADA apply to employers with 15 or more employees.
