I can think of two similar hearings we've held in Kansas under the WIA
complaint and grievance procedures.  In both, the local areas involved were
able to prove that participants were not being inappropriately steered away
from the complaining training providers.  I think the issue is appropriate
under the broad WIA language.  In one of the cases the complaint alleged
protected-class discrimination where the owner of the training provider
entity was African American.

One of our local area is involved in a protracted hearing with an eligible
training provider who feels his livelihood is at stake because he is not
getting enough WIA customers.  Has anyone had a similar experience?  I know
the WIA grievance procedures are fairly broad to include "other interested
parties" but are these types of issues really appropriate for WIA grievances?
I know we are required to provide appeals for removing eligible training
providers which seems more appropriate.  There is no guarantee of any
referrals just whether or not one goes on the list.
