Implementation of Section 511 Requirements

Section 511 of the Rehabilitation Act places limitations on the payment of subminimum wages by entities holding special wage certificates under Section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act.  The purpose of Section 511 is to ensure that individuals with disabilities have access to information and services that will enable them to achieve competitive integrated employment.  Section 511 includes requirements for State VR agencies, subminimum wage employers and local and/or State educational agencies, including specific requirements for youth prior to their participation in subminimum wage employment.

Please be sure and review the different sections of this topic area, including the Law, Regs and Policy area, which includes all of the requirements for implementation of Section 511 by each entity.
