Roundtable to Address Proposed Increase in Minimum Wage for Federal Contractors
The Office of Advocacy is hosting a roundtable discussion on July 8, 2014, to discuss a rule proposed by the Department of Labor implementing Executive Order 13658, which increases the hourly minimum wage for federal contractors, subcontractors and their workers to $10.10 per hour. Advocacy is interested in obtaining feedback from small business stakeholders at the roundtable because it has heard concerns from small federal contractors and subcontractors that this rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small businesses. Please see Advocacy’s Regulatory Alert on this rule.
The Department of Labor has set a due date for comments on this rule for July 17, 2014. However, the Office of Advocacy recently sent a letter to DOL requesting an extension of the comment period.
Details: The roundtable will be held on Tuesday, July 8, 2014 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. (EST) at the U.S. Small Business Administration, 409 Third Street, SW, Washington, DC 20416. It will take place in the Eisenhower Conference Room B (concourse level). DOL representatives have been invited to provide a briefing of this regulation at the roundtable.
A call-in option will also be available upon request.
