• On August 31, 2020, the Department of Labor published a Notice in the Federal Register: Establishing a Minimum Wage for Contractors, Notice of Rate Change in Effect as of January 1, 2021.

  • On February 15, 2019, WHD published three documents related to the payment of subminimum wages under section 14(c).
  • The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) has launched a new online tool that allows employers to electronically submit their applications for certification to employ workers under section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). This new online application interactively guides users through the information needed to complete their applications, submits the application directly to DOL, and provides users with a PDF copy of their submission.

    The online tool eliminates the need to submit paper applications and offers the added speed and security of online submission. Users who prefer to submit paper applications by mail may continue to do so.
