Administration Releases Fair Pay & Safe Workplaces Final Rule & Guidance
Complimentary AGC WebED Sept. 7

On August 25, the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Council and U.S. Department of Labor released a final rule and guidance, respectively, to implement the “Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces” Executive Order 13673, commonly called the Blacklisting Executive Order.  The order requires federal contractors and their subcontractors to disclose past labor and employment law violations as a condition of receiving a contract award.  It also requires such contractors to provide certain pay information to employees and independent contractors, and it limits the use of mandatory arbitration of employment-related disputes.  AGC has been actively working with Congress to undo this initiative and is prepared to pursue legal action.  

Certain provisions of the sweeping regulations will be implemented as early as October 25, 2016. As such, AGC has put out more thorough analysis of the rule, with detailed timelines, available here .  In addition, AGC will hold a webinar for contractors – complimentary for AGC members, $49 for non-members—on September 7 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.  Click here for webinar details and registration.

For more info on the rule, contact Jimmy Christianson at 703-837-5325 or
