Suit to Stop Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Filed


On October 7, the Associated Builders and Contractors filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas to stop implementation of the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces (FPSW) final rule, which is scheduled to become effective on October 25 (discussed here and here). The suit (a) seeks to have the underlying FPSW executive order, final FAR rule, and DOL guidance vacated because they allegedly exceed the Executive’s authority and conflict with laws enacted by Congress; and (b) argues that the FPSW disclosure requirements violate the first amendment and due process rights of contractors by forcing them to disclose allegations of labor and employment law violations that have not been fully adjudicated.
