Jane, 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."

(GC-LI) Sent: Tuesday, May 08, 2007 10:07 AM To: wiaattorneys@xxxxxxxxxxxxx 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.
