Frequently Asked Questions

If a sponsor has several participating employers, and each participating employer has fewer than five apprentices, is the sponsor required to have an Affirmative Action Program?

Equal Employment Opportunity

Yes. The exemption is based on the total number of apprentices per sponsor – not per employer.  Thus, if the number of apprentices in the sponsor’s program is five or more, the sponsor is required to maintain an Affirmative Action Program.  Regardless of the number of employers or the distribution of apprentices across them, if the total number of apprentices is five or more, the sponsor is required to have an Affirmative Action Program.
