doug for news.jpgWe previously reported President Obama signed Executive Order (E.O. 13673) on July  31, 2014 placing new requirements on companies with federal contracts that equal or exceed $500,000 (“Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces”).  On May 28th, 2015, the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) issued proposed guidance and the Federal Acquisition Regulatory (“FAR”) Council issued proposed regulations regarding E.O. 13673.  This proposal would require federal contractors to report all alleged labor violations of 14 federal labor laws and state equivalents.  These allegations will be taken into account prior to a company receiving a contract.

 

This month, CAI Partner National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) filed its comments on this proposed rule and guidance (aka the “Blacklisting” Rule).  The comments focus on the illegalities, impracticability and flawed economic analysis of the rule. We will keep you posted as events unfold.

 

While CAI spends most of its legislative attention on North Carolina matters, we are also involved on the National level.  In fact, CAI's President Bruce Clarke is the past-Chair of NAM's Employment and Labor subcommittee.  Through this role and partnership CAI impacts national labor policy.
