On July 31, 2014, President Obama signed an Executive Order entitled “Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces (aka, “blacklisting” regulations).  On August 24, 2016, the administration released the long-anticipated package of final Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council regulations (FAR regulations) and DOL guidance (guidance) to implement the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces.  The Order will require prospective federal contractors to disclose “violations” (as broadly defined by DOL guidance) under 14 labor and workplace laws before receiving a contract award.  Agencies will use this information to determine whether prospective contractors are responsible  bidders that could be awarded contracts or subcontracts. The same reporting requirement will repeat every six months for the duration of the contract. 

Please join us on September 8th as we outline the key provisions applicable to federal contractors and subcontractors and what employers should be doing now to begin to prepare for the new requirements. Topics will include:

  • Covered contractors, including subcontractor issues
  • Procurement Issues
  • Implementation timelines
  • Disclosure requirements
  • Voluntary preassessment options
  • Paycheck transparency requirements
  • Pre-Dispute arbitration clauses
