Wage and Hour Division (WHD)
School Work Experience Programs (SWEPs) List
The following employers hold certificates issued under section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The certificates authorize the payment of subminimum wages, wages that are less than the federal minimum wage, to workers who have disabilities that impair their productivity for the work being performed. An employer may hold more than one certificate for multiple work locations. This list is current as of January 1, 2016.
The list contains the name and physical address of the certificate holder, as well as the status and date of the employer’s most recent certification. The list also contains the certificate number generated by the Wage and Hour Division. The "SCA" and "PCA" columns indicate whether the certificate holder had an SCA or a PCA government contract at the time of application. The “Number of Workers Paid Subminimum Wages” column displays the number of workers with disabilities who were paid subminimum wages by the certificate holder during the certificate holder’s most recently completed fiscal year. This data is based solely on information provided on the employer’s certificate application.
Note: For certificate holders in “pending” status, the PCA and SCA columns, as well as the number of workers paid subminimum wages, are blank. This data is not recorded until an application is reviewed and a certificate is issued.
