“Blacklisting” Order Revoked by President Trump

President Trump has rescinded Executive Order 13673, otherwise known as the “Blacklisting” Rule. The move revokes the requirement that high-bidding federal contractors disclose information for 14 federal laws “when bidding on a new or renewed contract worth at least $500,000”. While the “paycheck transparency” section of the original order has been removed, federal contractors “remain subject to the ‘pay transparency’ amendments”, which protect¬†employees’ rights to discuss wages. Further actions on federal agency regulations are expected in the coming months, including changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act.
