Bah Humbug: Appropriations Bill Contains Lump of Coal for DoL on "Fair Pay" Funding

Dec.21.2015

The FY 2016 Omnibus Appropriations bill, passed on December 18, 2015, did not appropriate funds to establish an Office of Labor Compliance within DoL to implement the "Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces" Executive Order, as requested by the Obama Administration. By declining to appropriate the requested funds, Congress pumped the brakes on the implementation of the EO, which, as described here, would impose burdensome compliance and reporting obligations on federal contractors and subcontractors.
