Obama to Require Contractors to Disclose Labor Violations
President Barack Obama is scheduled today to announce measures to improve working conditions for employees of federal contractors, some of whom have gone on strike over what they contend are unfair labor practices by companies doing business with the U.S. government.
Obama will sign an executive order at the White House to require companies to disclose labor law violations and that will provide guidance to federal agencies on how to weigh the black marks when awarding contracts, according to a fact sheet released by the White House early today.
“Taxpayer dollars should not reward corporations that break the law, so today President Obama is cracking down on federal contractors who put workers’ safety and hard-earned pay at risk,” according to an administration statement.
Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Executive Order 13665
Encouraging Pay Transparency and Prohibiting Discrimination for Discussing, Disclosing or Inquiring About Compensation
On April 8, 2014, President Obama signed Executive Order 13665 to encourage greater pay transparency by prohibiting federal contractors and subcontractors from discharging or otherwise discriminating against their employees and job applicants for discussing, disclosing or inquiring about compensation. This Executive Order amended section 202 of Executive Order 11246, which is enforced by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs. The President directed the Labor Department to issue regulations within 160 days articulating how the agency would implement the new nondiscrimination requirement.
The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs has developed a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on this matter and it will be available for public comment for a period of 90 days after it is published in the Federal Register on September 17, 2014.
Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Approves OFCCP's Revised Scheduling Letter and Itemized Listing
On September 30, 2014, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved the revised scheduling letter and itemized listing used by the Department of Labor, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) for audits of federal contractors' affirmative action programs. The approval expires on March 31, 2016. As a result, OFCCP is no longer using the previous versions of these documents to schedule compliance evaluations.
OFCCP has announced that it will not schedule supply and service compliance evaluations from October 1 through October 15, 2014. Contractors should use this period to review and become acquainted with the new letter and itemized listing. These documents incorporate some of the proposed changes from the 2011 revisions, as well as changes to ensure that we obtain the information needed for evaluating the new Section 503 and VEVRAA affirmative action programs.
The schedule letter and itemized listing, and compliance check letter are available on reginfo.gov - click here
