OFCCP Final Rule on Pay Transparency Takes Effect

On January 11, 2016, the final rule issued by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) implementing Executive Order 13665 (EO) took effect. Issued in April 2014, the EO amended Executive Order 11246 by prohibiting federal contractors and subcontractors from retaliating or discriminating against employees and applicants who inquire about, discuss, or disclose his or her own compensation or the compensation of other employees or applicants.

As part of the current Administration’s efforts to ensure equal pay for equal work, the EO and implementing final rule impact federal contracts and subcontracts in excess of $10,000 that are entered into or modified on or after January 11, 2016. For more information on the specifics of the final rule, click here

OFCCP has made training and educational resources available for contractors that are required to comply with the rule’s requirements.  Contractors may visit the OFCCP website to download a webinar recording and transcript as well as frequently asked questions.  Also available are new language required for employee handbooks and postings and a revised “EEO is the Law poster supplement.
