Earlier this week, OFCCP delivered to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) proposed regulations implementing the President’s recent Executive Order 13665 prohibiting employers from retaliating against employees for discussing their pay. A White House Fact Sheet provides more information on how the proposed regulations fit into the President’s pay initiatives.
After OMB reviews (and approves) of the proposed regulations, the public will have the opportunity to comment on OFCCP’s proposed rules. OMB’s review generally takes 90 days, but this time period may be shorted or extended as needed. In fact, according to the OMB timetable, the Notice of Proposed Rule Making (containing the proposed rules) is due in September.
We will make sure post an update when the regulations have been released for public consumption.
