OFCCP’s Final Rule on Pay Transparency Takes Effect January 11, 2016
|The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) will host a public Webinar on January 11, 2016, the effective date for its final rule promoting pay transparency. The final rule amends the existing regulations that implement Executive Order 11246, and helps renew the promise of equal pay for equal work for millions of applicants and employees of covered federal contractors and subcontractors. The final rule will provide these workers with a way to safely discuss their pay, identify potential pay disparities, and seek timely remedies for unwarranted disparities in pay.
During the Webinar, presenters from OFCCP’s Division of Policy and Program Development and the Department’s Office of the Solicitor will provide an overview of the final rule, address questions received by the agency since the rule’s September publication, and illustrate the practical application of defenses provided in the rule through several hypothetical scenarios.
