Michigan Apprenticeship Training: What you need to know

An apprenticeship program combines classroom instruction or education with on-the-job training under the close supervision of a skilled and experienced journeyworker in a craft, trade, or profession. Michigan does not have its own state apprenticeship law. Therefore, the federal Department of Labor's Office of Apprenticeship (OA) regulates apprenticeship programs in Michigan. There is comprehensive information on the federal apprenticeship law available.

The Director of Consumer and Industry Services may establish a pay scale for apprentices that is less than the regular minimum wage rate for experienced workers (MI Comp. Laws 408.414c).
Under Michigan law, it is unlawful to discriminate in a training or apprenticeship program on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, height, weight, or marital status, unless a characteristic is a bona fide occupational qualification (BFOQ) reasonably necessary to the operation of the business. The burden of proving a BFOQ is on the employer (MI Comp. Laws Sec. 37.2205, Sec. 37.1205).
