Discussed next are various federal laws and regulations affecting the employment of apprentices, including apprentice wage determination regulations, veterans readjustment legislation, wage and hours regulations, and equal employment opportunity legislation and regulations. The final two sections deal with joint training funds and apprenticeship records.
