As if the egregious doubling of the “white collar exemption” weren’t enough, Obama’s Department of Labor has proposed another new regulation that is very friendly to organized labor at the expense of business. Although QSRs will likely not be directly impacted, a new regulation proposed by the Department of Labor and the Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council will require that companies disclose any and all labor law violations when they are pursuing federal contracts worth $500,000 or more. On its face, that may seem reasonable until one considers that all initial determinations by agencies in labor law cases must be disclosed as violations even though there has been no determination of guilt. Further, the regulation, which resulted from another Executive Order issued by President Obama 13 months ago, will encourage more frivolous claims by unions in order to assist them with their organizing campaigns. The public comment period for this proposal ended this past Wednesday.
