§207. Termination of Apprentice Agreements.

(a) During the probationary period, if any, an apprentice agreement shall be terminated by the program sponsor at the request in writing of either party. An apprentice terminated by the program sponsor while on probation shall have no right to file a complaint under section 201 nor to contest the cancellation under section 207.1.

(b) After the probationary period, or where there is no probationary period, the apprentice agreement may only be terminated by the Administrator.

(1) Where there is mutual agreement of the parties, an apprentice agreement may be terminated by submitting to the Administrator a request in writing to terminate the agreement signed by the parties.

(2) Where there is not mutual agreement, either party may request that the agreement be terminated by the Administrator. The party making the request shall submit whatever evidence it believes shows that there is good and sufficient reason to terminate the agreement. The Administrator shall review the evidence and, where there is good and sufficient reason, shall terminate the agreement. The Administrator shall act within sixty days of receipt of the request. No program sponsor shall submit a request to terminate an apprentice agreement unless it shall first have given the apprentice notice in writing of its intended action and, if the program's standards provide for a local adjustment procedure, of the apprentice's right to exhaust the local adjustment procedure. In its request, the program sponsor shall advise the Administrator of the notice to the apprentice.
