Community-Based Vocational Training Field Manual. A Guide for Interpreting State and Federal Wage Hour Guidelines, Insurance Coverage, and Development of Community Sites for Students with Mild, Moderate, or Severe Handicaps. Secondary Transition and Employment Project: STEP.
Baumgart, Diane; And Others
The guide, developed by the Secondary Transition and Employment Project (STEP) in Idaho, is intended for agency or school staff developing a community-based vocational training program for persons with mild, moderate, or severe disabilities. The guide is intended to be used with three available video tapes. The first module's goal is the understanding and proper application of the state and federal wage hour guidelines. Sample sub-goals include determining if an employer-employee relationship exists and assessing a worker's productivity and pay rate. Module II involves understanding and properly applying insurance guidelines with such subgoals as: determining the extent and type of insurance coverage provided under the agency's current policy, and determining the student or adult is covered by the business' insurance. The third module stresses the delineation of strategies for developing training sites or work stations in the following sub-goals: distinguishing between a work station, work assignment, and job placement; evaluating each site with respect to worker integration, training required, number of placements per site, and availability of similar employment in the community; and developing a short presentation and/or handout on the agency/school's community-based vocational training program. Appendixes include such texts as: "Employment Relations Under the Fair Labor Standards Act" and "Regulations, Part 524. Special Minimum Wages for Handicapped Workers in Competitive Employment." (DB)
