Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Final Rule Planned for Spring 2016
Last week, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) released the Government’s semi-annual regulatory agenda. According to the agenda, the Federal Acquisition Regulatory (FAR) Council is targeting April 2016 for release of the final rule implementing Executive Order 13673, Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces. Wiley Rein previously reported here and here on the host of compliance challenges that contractors will face both before and after implementation of the final rule. We encourage contractors to take OPM’s agenda as a reminder to review policies, procedures, and data reporting ahead of the final rule’s implementation this coming year.
