(B) Such agreement shall be approved by each local board providing guidance to the local area and shall be described in the local plan under section 2833 of this title.
(4) On-the-job training contracts under this chapter shall not be entered into with employers who have received payments under previous contracts and have exhibited a pattern of failing to provide on-the-job training participants with continued long-term employment as regular employees with wages and employment benefits (including health benefits) and working conditions at the same level and to the same extent as other employees working a similar length of time and doing the same type of work.
(5) No person or organization may charge an individual a fee for the placement or referral of the individual in or to a workforce investment activity under this chapter.
(6) The Secretary shall not provide financial assistance for any program under this chapter that involves political activities.
(A) Income under any program administered by a public or private nonprofit entity may be retained by such entity only if such income is used to continue to carry out the program.
(B) Income subject to the requirements of subparagraph (A) shall include—
(i) receipts from goods or services (including conferences) provided as a result of activities funded under this chapter;
(ii) funds provided to a service provider under this chapter that are in excess of the costs associated with the services provided; and
(iii) interest income earned on funds received under this chapter.
(C) For purposes of this paragraph, each entity receiving financial assistance under this chapter shall maintain records sufficient to determine the amount of such income received and the purposes for which such income is expended.

(B) Standards and procedures with respect to awarding academic credit and certifying educational attainment in programs conducted under such part shall be consistent with the requirements of applicable State and local law, including regulation.
(10) No funds available under this chapter may be used for public service employment except as specifically authorized under this chapter.
(11) The Federal requirements governing the chapter, use, and disposition of real property, equipment, and supplies purchased with funds provided under this chapter shall be the Federal requirements generally applicable to Federal grants to States and local governments.
(12) Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to provide an individual with an entitlement to a service under this chapter.
(13) Services, facilities, or equipment funded under this chapter may be used, as appropriate, on a fee-for-service basis, by employers in a local area in order to provide employment and training activities to incumbent workers—
(A) when such services, facilities, or equipment are not in use for the provision of services for eligible participants under this chapter;
(B) if such use for incumbent workers would not have an adverse affect  [1] on the provision of services to eligible participants under this chapter; and
(C) if the income derived from such fees is used to carry out the programs authorized under this chapter.

[1]  So in original. Probably should be “effect”.
