January 15 Webinar - Update on VA Contracts and $10.10 Issue with DOL and VA Officials

Scott Jackson CMP and Nancy Leveille in Education

On Thursday, January 15, from 2:00 - 3:30pm EST, you will have the opportunity to get your questions answered relating to the $10.10 wage issue and VA contracts with officials from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).  As you know from previous correspondences from AHCA, on February 12, 2014, President Obama signed Executive Order 13658, Establishing a Minimum Wage for Contractors . The Executive Order raises the hourly minimum wage paid by contractors to workers performing on covered Federal contracts to: (i) $10.10 per hour, beginning January 1, 2015; and (ii) beginning January 1, 2016, and annually thereafter, an amount determined by the Secretary of DOL in accordance with the Order. On October 1, 2014, DOL published the final rule implementing the provisions of Executive Order 13658.  See attached for details.
