Summary and Analysis of the Job Training Partnership Act of 1982 with Selected Provisions of Interest to Individuals and Groups Concerned about Employment and Training Opportunities for Women.
Women's Bureau (DOL), Washington, DC.
This document consists of a summary and analysis of the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) of 1982 as well as an explanation of selected provisions of interest to individuals and groups concerned about employment and training opportunities for women. (Designed to replace the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act, the JTPA permanently authorizes job training programs for economically disadvantaged individuals and others who face serious barriers to employment.) Outlined first are the provisions contained in the five titles of the act as they pertain to state and local job training partnerships, training services for the disadvantaged, employment and training assistance for dislocated workers, federally administered programs, and miscellaneous provisions. The second half of the document examines various provisions of the act that are of particular relevance to employment and training opportunities for women, including the purpose of the act, authorization of appropriations, service delivery systems, additional state responsibilities, program requirements for service delivery systems, federal and fiscal administrative provisions, adult and youth programs, employment and training programs for migrant and seasonal farmworkers and for Native Americans, veterans' employment programs, national activities, labor market information, and training to fulfill affirmative action obligations.
