NEW REGULATIONS FOR MINIMUM WAGE FOR FEDERAL & FEDERAL CONTRACT WORKERS

From NASFAA

 

An Executive Order (EO) released February 12, 2014 by President Obama will raise the minimum wage for federal contract workers to $10.10, effective for new (and renewing) contracts beginning January 1, 2015. The higher wage will apply to new contracts and replacements for expiring contracts. While the Executive Order (or accompanying fact sheet ) does not contain any specific exemption or coverage requirements for student workers, the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR) has issued guidance to institutions that the new wage minimums would only apply to students “working on covered contracts and only for those hours the student works on the contract.” The Labor Department published the Final Rule implementing the Executive Order in the Federal Register on October 7, 2014 . The new minimum wage for federal contractors covers: • Procurement contracts for construction covered by the Davis-Bacon Act; • Contracts for services covered by the Service Contract Act; • Contracts for concessions, including any concessions contract excluded from coverage under the Service Contract Act by Department of Labor regulations; and • Contracts entered into with the federal government in connection with federal property or lands and related to offering services for federal employees, their dependents, or the general public.
