The relevant info is buried in WIA §195(5) which states that "no person or 
organization may charge an individual a fee for the placement or referral of 
the individual in or to a workforce investment activity under this title."

Subject: [wiaattorneys] Charging Participants


We have a local area that  wants to charge participants $100 when they go to 
WIA training over $1000. Their reason is that people are starting training but 
then dropping out because they have no incentive to stick with it.  

I'm going to look through WIA and regs and TEGLs but was wondering if anyone 
has dealt with this or can direct me to the particular statute or reg or 
preamble language or TEGL on charging participants or, according to my gut, NOT.
