Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces, We Hardly Knew Ye

Mar.28.2017

On March 27, 2017, President Trump signed a joint resolution under the Congressional Review Act disapproving the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Final Rule. Most of the rule’s requirements were put on hold in October when a U.S. district court judge in Texas granted a preliminary injunction (discussion available here); however, the rule’s paycheck transparency requirements became effective on January 1, 2017. The President’s signature will eliminate the entire rule, including the paycheck transparency requirements, relieving contractors of substantial compliance burdens associated with the FAR rules and Department of Labor Guidance implementing the EO.
