Final Rule for Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Set for April 2016

November 30, 2015

On Nov. 19, 2015, OMB released the fall 2015 regulatory agenda of regulations currently under development, listing April 2016 as the target for publication of the final rule implementing the "Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces" executive order. The final rule, which is likely to be challenged in court by contractors and industry trade groups, will impose significant compliance and reporting obligations on federal contractors (as described here), causing some contractors to begin reviewing internal processes for identifying and reporting labor compliance information under the rule.
