Just about ten days ago, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) unveiled proposed changes to forms that employers are required to submit when they work with third-party consulting firms to fight unionization efforts within their business. The changes proposed by DOL appear to target a select number of businesses – those who are vulnerable to federal government pressure as federal contractors or subcontractors. Specifically, the agency has proposed that the Form LM-10 be amended to include a box for employers to self-identify as a federal contractor or subcontractor under the guise of “promote[ing] transparency and support[ing] harmonious labor relations.” In actuality, the change appears to require certain employers to put a target on their own business should they choose to object to unionization efforts within their workplace. Under the proposed change, an employer under a federal contract or subcontract would be required to provide their unique GSA Entity Identifier and provide additional information on the federal agencies with which they are engaged. The proposed change was published in the Federal Register on September 13 and public comments on it will be accepted now through October 13, 2022 here at https://www.regulations.gov/document/LMSO-2022-0001-0001.
