Alabama 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. Alabama does not have its own state apprenticeship law; therefore, the U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL) Office of Apprenticeship (OA) governs apprenticeship in the state, providing employers with technical assistance and information; issuing standards; and monitoring, registering, and canceling apprenticeship programs. Additional information on federal apprenticeship law is available.

Federal law under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits an employer of 15 or more workers, private and public employment agencies, labor organizations, and joint labor management committees controlling apprenticeship and training programs from discriminating against any apprentice or applicant for apprenticeship on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin (42 USC 2000e-2).
The federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and Alabama law prohibit employers, labor organizations, or joint labor-management committees controlling apprenticeship or other training programs from discriminating on the basis of age (40 and over) in choosing applicants for apprenticeship programs (9 USC 621, AL Code Sec. 25-1-21). Employers with 20 or more employees are covered by federal and state age discrimination laws.
