President Trump Eliminates Executive Order 13673 and 'Blacklisting Rule'

Actions Abolish Certain Disclosure Requirements for Federal Contractors

President Trump has revoked Executive Order 13673, the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order, and the so-called "blacklisting rule" for federal contractors.

Background
Executive Order 13673, as amended by Executive Orders 13683 and 13738, and a final rule ("blacklisting rule") implementing that Executive Order, required certain prospective federal contractors to disclose violations of certain basic workplace protections, including those addressing wage and hour, safety and health, collective bargaining, family and medical leave, and civil rights, before receiving a federal contract with the Department of Defense, General Services Administration, or NASA. The final rule also required covered contractors to provide wage statements to covered workers containing information about hours worked, overtime hours, pay, and additions to or deductions from pay.

New Executive Order and Joint Resolution Signed
A new Executive Order, signed by President Trump on March 27, 2017, revokes in full Executive Orders 13673 and 13738, as well as section 3 of Executive Order 13683. The Executive Order also directs all executive departments and agencies, as appropriate and to the extent consistent with law, to consider promptly rescinding any orders, rules, regulations, guidance, guidelines, or policies implementing or enforcing these revoked executive orders and executive order provisions.

Upon signing the Executive Order, President Trump also signed into law House Joint Resolution 37, which repeals the "blacklisting rule."
