Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Executive Order 13665

Encouraging Pay Transparency and Prohibiting Discrimination for 
Discussing, Disclosing or Inquiring About Compensation

On April 8, 2014, President Obama signed Executive Order 13665 to encourage greater pay transparency by prohibiting federal contractors and subcontractors from discharging or otherwise discriminating against their employees and job applicants for discussing, disclosing or inquiring about compensation.  This Executive Order amended section 202 of Executive Order 11246, which is enforced by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs. The President directed the Labor Department to issue regulations within 160 days articulating how the agency would implement the new nondiscrimination requirement.

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs has developed a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on this matter and it will be available for public comment for a period of 90 days after it is published in the Federal Register on September 17, 2014.
