Chapter 296-05-007 WAC, Rules of Procedure. Chapter 296-05-321 WAC, Apprenticeship AgreementóCancellation.

The apprenticeship system in this state is authorized under the federal system of apprenticeship, specifically 29 C.F.R. Part 29 and 30. The apprenticeship program needs to proceed with rulemaking in response to the need for continued federal recognition of our state system of apprenticeship. The United States Department of Labor recently informed the department that there were a couple of areas the department needs to correct in order to be in full compliance with federal regulations. The department is adopting language to mitigate the concerns of the United States Department of Labor.706.
