At what point does a sponsor have to establish a utilization goal for race, sex, or ethnicity?

Equal Employment Opportunity

A sponsor is considered to be underutilizing a specific demographic group when the percentage of women, Hispanics or Latinos, or individuals of a particular racial minority group in the sponsor’s program is significantly less than would be reasonably expected given the availability of such individuals for apprenticeship.  If the sponsor finds that its program’s percentage of apprentices of a particular race, sex, or ethnicity falls significantly below that group’s availability in the relevant recruitment area, it must establish a utilization goal.
