Yesterday I presented an hour-long webinar discussing how to prepare for and navigate the “Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces” proposed rule and accompanying guidance.
On May 28, 2015, the Obama Administration published the much anticipated proposed DOL guidance and accompanying Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) proposed rule implementing EO 13673, Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces (July 31, 2014). In the webinar we highlighted key elements of both publications and their impact on government contractors, including:
- The new “labor law violation” disclosure requirements and resulting contracting officer responsibility determinations
- Unique role of “Labor Compliance Advisors”
- Paycheck transparency and independent contractor notice requirements
- Limitation on companywide arbitration plans
The FAR Council is extending the comment period for the proposed rule from July 27, 2015, to August 11, 2015.
