This module presents the varying requirements from the Uniform Guidance and program statutes applicable to grant recipients and subrecipients for processing and resolving program-related complaints and grievances, complaints alleging discrimination, and Incident Reports involving allegations of fraud, waste, and abuse. The presentation distinguishes between the three types of allegations and the differences in the processes for addressing them. It describes the WIOA complaint resolution procedures that grantees must maintain, including timelines and appeal rights, and the role of the Department of Labor in each process. The presentation defines the activities that constitute fraud, waste, and abuse; identifies the laws and regulations that govern wrongful conduct; and describes the role and responsibilities of grantees, ETA, and the Office of the Inspector General in the process of reporting and resolving incidents of wrongful or criminal conduct.
