Join a discussion at TASH about the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) of 2014. WIOA holds promise for national progress on competitive integrated employment (CIE) for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and others with significant disabilities. This Act provides a clear definition of competitive integrated employment, a new definition of supported employment and a definition of customized employment. Transition from school to work is emphasized. The Act also created and Advisory Committee for Increasing Competitive Integrated Employment for Individuals with Disabilities, established to advise the Secretary of Labor, and Congress on: ways to increase CIE, the use of Section 14  ( c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act (sub-minimum wages), and the oversight of such certificates. By December 2015, this Committee will have met six times and is crafting recommendations.
