The U.S. Department of Labor announced today another extension of the public comment period for the proposed guidance and regulations implementing The Fair Pay & Safe Workplaces Executive Order 13673.  The deadline for submitting comments is now August 26, 2015.  This is the second extension for this public comment period.

The notice does not specifically address whether the additional extension was in response to the recent Congress Committee chairs letter to the Agency raising concerns with the proposals but does state the extension is to allow “interested parties” more time to comment.
