The White House recently issued three Executive Orders (“EO”) that will impose new labor policy requirements on government contractors. The most recent EO requires mandatory contractor disclosure and public reporting about contractor violations of 14 specific labor laws and requires contracting officers to consider this information when making a “responsibility” determination. The Federal Acquisition Regulation and DoL Guidance implementing the EO were published in the Federal Register on May 28, 2015 and highlight critical issues of which businesses should be aware and for which they should begin to prepare. The proposed FAR and Guidance not only impact tracking and reporting labor violations but mandate new requirements for arbitration clauses, pay transparency, and hiring independent contractors.
Our webinar panel with Nichole Atallah, a member of our Labor and Employment Law Group, and Mark Burroughs, a partner with Dixon Hughes Goodman will discuss this guidance and how it affects government contractors:
- Where does the guidance provide clarity?
- Where does the guidance further confuse the situation?
- What can we expect moving forward?
