The U.S. Senate last week voted in favor of House Joint Resolution 37 (H.J. Res. 37), which would repeal the regulations established by the Obama Administration’s July 31, 2014, Executive Order on Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces. Specifically, H.J. Res. 37, would revoke the paycheck transparency component of the regulations, which went into effect on January 1, 2017. H.J. Res. 37 would also permanently nullify the other two components of the 2014 executive order involving labor violation reporting and arbitration restrictions, which were preliminarily enjoined by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas before their effective date last October.
