Civil Rights Home | On the Job Training Home
The Federal Aid Highway Act of 1968 was passed by the 91st Congress. It included a special section devoted to promoting and ensuring Equal Employment Opportunity (hereinafter referred to as EEO) in the field of Federal-Aid highway construction. The Act outlined how the incorporation of equal opportunity legislation and regulations would be accomplished and reiterated that inclusion of these provisions reflected the congressional commitment to the development of an effective equal employment opportunity program.
The primary objective of DelDOT's On-the-Job Training Program is to provide training opportunities for women, minorities, and disadvantaged persons which will increase their participation in every job classification in the highway construction industry as well as increase those groups’ participation as journey-level workers in the industry. DelDOT makes the assignment of training positions on federal aid projects.
