REVOKED: Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces ("Blacklisting")

On March 27, 2017, President Trump signed into law a Resolution revoking the rules implementing Executive Order 13673 of July 31, 2014, Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces (aka “Blacklisting Rule”).

Also on the same day, President Trump issued Presidential Executive Order on the Revocation of Federal Contracting Executive Orders. As a result of the new legislation, federal contractors will no longer be required to implement procedures to comply with paycheck transparency, report alleged labor violations to federal agencies as part of the bid process and will not be prohibited from entering into mandatory arbitration agreements concerning employee Title VII claims.
