The National Women’s Law Center submitted comments in support of the proposed rule issued by the Federal Acquisition Regulation Council to advance pay equity and transparency in federal contracting. The proposed rule would prohibit federal contractors from seeking and considering compensation history when making employment decisions, including pay setting decisions, for personnel applying to work on federal contracts. It would also require federal contractors to provide compensation information, including pay ranges and a description of benefits, in job postings for these positions. By promoting pay transparency and ensuring that gender bias and pay discrimination do not follow workers from job to job, the Proposed Rule will increase pay equity and combat discrimination, which will in turn improve economy and efficiency in federal contracting. NWLC also offered recommendations to strengthen the proposed rule by providing greater clarity, transparency, and accountability.
