On Thursday, the Department of Labor and the Federal Acquisition Regulatory (FAR) Council will issue proposed guidance and proposed regulations, respectively, regarding the implementation of the President’s Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order. The Executive Order requires federal contractors to disclose a wide variety of labor law violations, but did not provide great specificity with respect to its provisions. The proposed guidance and regulations now provide definitions and explanations of a great number of those provisions.

For a discussion of the proposals, see our Client Alert here. In addition, later this week, we plan to post a description of the particulars of the proposals as they relate to wage and hour issues.
