Worker Rights Under Executive Order 13658: Federal Minimum Wage for Contractors Poster

On February 12, 2014, the President signed Executive Order 13658, establishing a Minimum Wage for Contractors. The Executive Order requires that parties who contract with the Federal Government pay workers performing work on or in connection with covered Federal contracts at least: (1) $10.10 per hour beginning January 1, 2015; and (2) beginning January 1, 2016, and annually thereafter, an amount determined by the Secretary of Labor in accordance with the Executive Order.

On September 16, 2015, the Department of Labor published a Notice in the Federal Register to announce that, beginning January 1, 2016, the Executive Order 13658 minimum wage rate is increased to $10.15 per hour. This Executive Order minimum wage rate generally must be paid to workers performing work on or in connection with covered contracts. Additionally, beginning January 1, 2016, tipped employees performing work on or in connection with covered contracts generally must be paid a minimum cash wage of $5.85 per hour. Questions relating to the Executive Order and/or these wage rates may be directed to the Office of Government Contracts at (202) 693-0064.
