California Apprenticeship Council (CAC)
The CAC was established by the Shelley-Maloney Apprentice Labor Standards Act of 1939. The council holds an open quarterly meeting to conduct the business of apprenticeship in California and fulfill its statutory responsibilities: providing policy advice on apprenticeship matters to the director of industrial relations, issuing rules and regulations on specific apprenticeship subjects to be published in the California Code of Regulations, and conducting appeals hearings.
As administrator of apprenticeship, DIR's director investigates and issues determinations regarding apprentice disputes, and the CAC hears appeals of these determinations.
Of the council's 17 members, 14 are appointed by the governor for four-year terms; six represent management, six represent labor, two represent the public. The remaining three are ex officio members representing the chancellor of the California Community Colleges, the superintendent of public instruction, and DIR's director. The chief of the Division of Apprenticeship Standards serves as secretary to the CAC, and DAS provides staff services.
