As you may recall, back in October of 2016 the day before the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Final Rule “Blacklisting Regulation” was to go into effect a U.S. District Court Judge placed an injunction on the rule. A new development has occurred, the Senate voted yesterday to disapprove the Final Rule.

 

What does this mean for federal contractors and subcontractors?

As long as President Trump signs off on the resolution:

  • The requirement of federal contractors to report violations of 14 different labor laws will not be going into effect
  • The Pay Transparency provision requiring contractors with contracts or subcontracts which exceed $500,000 to provide notice to all workers who are subject to FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act), the DBA (Davis-Bacon Act), or the SCA (Service Contract Act), as of each pay period obligations will cease
  • Mandatory arbitration agreements will not be going into effect
