A. A sponsor adopting a selection method under Regulation .05B(1) or (2) of this chapter, and a sponsor adopting a selection method under Regulation .05B(4) who determines that there are fewer minorities and women (minority and nonminority) on its existing lists of eligibles than would reasonably be expected in view of the analysis described in Regulation .04E of this chapter shall discard all existing eligibility lists upon adoption of the selection methods required by these regulations.
B. New eligibility pools shall be established and lists of eligibility pools shall be posted at the sponsor's place of business. Sponsors shall establish a reasonable period of not less than 2 weeks for accepting applications for admission to an apprenticeship program. There will be at least 30 days of public notice in advance of the earliest date for application for admission to the apprenticeship program (see Regulation .04C of this chapter on affirmative action with respect to dissemination of information). Applicants who have been placed in a pool of eligibles shall be retained on lists of eligibles subject to selection for a period of 2 years. Applicants may be removed from the list at an earlier date by their request or following their failure to respond to an apprentice job opportunity given by certified mail, return receipt requested.
C. Applicants who have been accepted in the program shall be afforded a reasonable period of time in light of the customs and practices of the industry for reporting for work. All applicants shall be treated equally in determining this period of time. It shall be the responsibility of the applicant to keep the sponsor informed of his or her current mailing address. Upon request, a sponsor may restore to the list of eligibles applicants who have been removed from the list or who have failed to respond to an apprenticeship job opportunity.
