Federal Contractors Face Major Compliance Changes in 2016

74625[1]This year federal contractors and subcontractors will be busy navigating new laws and new posting responsibilities. Changes include an increase in the federal contractor minimum wage rate, implementation of the final rule requiring pay transparency, and expanded Equal Employment Opportunity rights for employees and applicants of federal contractors or subcontractors. For each of these changes there are also new posting requirements.

Federal contractors and subcontractors can obtain information on the new laws, rules and regulations, get answers to frequently asked questions, and access a number of resources to guide contractors through new responsibilities from the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website http://www.dol.gov/ofccp/. Federal contractors are also required to post three new notices under OFCCP regulations:

1. New! Pay Transparency Nondiscrimination Provision

2. New! “EEO is the Law” Poster Supplement

3. Updated! Worker Rights under Executive Order 13658 (Federal Contractor Minimum Wage)
