DOL and Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council Expected to Issue Rules for Labor Law Violations and Sick Leave


As reported by the Associated Builders & Contractors, there are two proposed laws in the works at the Federal level that could impact contractors.  First, there is a “Blacklisting Proposal” that would require federal contractors to voluntarily disclose labor law violations over a specified dollar threshold.  These disclosures could be used against a contractor when seeking federal contracts exceeding $500,000.

Second, the DOL has proposed rules that would change mandatory sick leave for federal contractors.  The final ruling is expected in September.
