These amendments are necessary because of the dissolution of the Employment Standards Administration (ESA), and because the Secretary's order of November 16, 2012, delegated authority and assigned responsibilities to the Director of the Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) in administering the Department's responsibilities under the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959 (LMRDA) and under certain provisions relating to standards of conduct for federal sector labor organizations in the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 (CSRA), the Foreign Service Act of 1980 (FSA), and the Congressional Accountability Act of 1995 (CAA). In addition, a separate order on November 16, 2012, delegated authority and assigned certain responsibilities in enforcement of the CSRA, LMRDA, and FSA, previously vested in ESA, to the Department's Administrative Review Board (ARB).reorganization-and-delegation-of-authority-technical-amendmentsFR-Doc-2013-01020

This final rule sets forth the Board's review of and responses to comments on the proposal and incorporates any changes made to the rule in response to those comments. The Board believes that many employees protected by the NLRA are unaware of their rights under the statute and that the rule will increase knowledge of the NLRA among employees, in order to better enable the exercise of rights under the statute. A beneficial side effect may well be the promotion of statutory compliance by employers and unions. The final rule establishes the size, form, and content of the notice, and sets forth provisions regarding the enforcement of the rule.notification-of-employee-rights-under-the-national-labor-relations-actFR-Doc-2011-21724

Rescission of Form T-1, Trust Annual Report; Requiring Subsidiary Organization Reporting on the Form LM-2, Labor Organization Annual Report; Modifying Subsidiary Organization Reporting on the Form LM-3, Labor Organization Annual Report; LMRDA Coverage of Intermediate Labor Organizations; Final RuleRule2010-2922612/01/2010DEPARTMENT OF LABORLabor DepartmentThis rule rescinds the Form T-1, Trust Annual Report, and rescinds its implementing regulations by removing them from the CFR.

This form was promulgated by the final rule published in the Federal Register on October 2, 2008 (2008 Form T-1 rule). The Form T-1 was required to be filed by labor organizations about certain trusts in which they are interested pursuant to the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959. Upon further review of the 2008 Form T-1 rule, including the pertinent facts and legally relevant policy considerations surrounding that rulemaking, as well as the comments received from the February 2, 2010, notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to rescind the Form T-1, the Department of Labor (Department) rescinds the rule implementing the Form T-1 because it considers the trust reporting required under the rule to be overly broad and, as structured, is not necessary to prevent circumvention and evasion of the Title II reporting requirements. Additionally, this rule returns ``subsidiary organization'' reporting to the Form LM-2 (Labor Organization Annual Report), which the Department considers to be necessary to satisfy the purposes of the LMRDA, and it clarifies the scope of such reporting in response to comments received in the NPRM. Finally, in interpreting the definition of ``labor organization'' under the LMRDA, the Department returns to its long held view that the statute's coverage does not encompass intermediate bodies that are wholly composed of public sector organizations. In so doing, the Department has reconsidered a definitional interpretation that it adopted in 2003.rescission-of-form-t-1-trust-annual-report-requiring-subsidiary-organization-reporting-on-the-formFR-Doc-2010-29226

This final rule sets forth the Department's review of and response to comments on the proposal and any changes made to the rule in response to those comments. President Barack Obama signed Executive Order 13496 (``Executive Order'' or ``E.O. 13496'') on January 30, 2009. The Executive Order requires nonexempt Federal departments and agencies to include within their Government contracts specific provisions requiring contractors and subcontractors with whom they do business to post notices informing their employees of their rights as employees under Federal labor laws. The Executive Order requires the Secretary of Labor (``Secretary'') to prescribe the size, form, and content of the notice that must be posted by a contractor under paragraph 1 of the contract clause described in section 2 of the Order. Under the Executive Order, unless a specified exception or exemption applies, Federal Government contracting departments and agencies must include the required contract provisions in every Government contract. As required by the Executive Order, this final rule establishes the content of the notice required by the Executive Order's contract clause, and implements other provisions of the Executive Order, including provisions regarding sanctions, penalties, and remedies that may be imposed if the contractor or subcontractor fails to comply with its obligations under the Order and the implementing regulations.notification-of-employee-rights-under-federal-labor-lawsFR-Doc-2010-11639

The Department of Labor (Department) proposes to amend these regulations because it believes that the trust reporting required under the rule is overly broad and is not necessary to prevent the circumvention and evasion of the Title II reporting requirements. Moreover, the Department views separate trust reporting requirements as unnecessary, in part because the Department also proposes to return ``subsidiary organization'' reporting to the Form LM-2 reporting requirements, which it believes is necessary to satisfy the purposes of the LMRDA. Finally, in interpreting the definition of ``labor organization'' under the LMRDA, the Department proposes to return to its long held view that the statute's coverage does not encompass intermediate bodies that are wholly composed of public sector organizations. In so doing, the Department has reconsidered a definitional interpretation that it adopted in 2003, which the Department now considers to have been insufficiently supported during the rulemaking process. The Department seeks comment on each of these proposals.rescission-of-form-t-1-trust-annual-report-require-subsidiary-organization-reporting-on-the-formFR-Doc-2010-1912

Upon consideration of the comments received following an April 21, 2009 notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), the Department withdraws the January 21 rule. The rule is withdrawn because the revisions it made to the Form LM-2 were issued without an adequate review of the Department's experience under the relatively recent revisions to Form LM-2 in 2003, and because the comments received indicate that the Department may have underestimated the increased burden that the rule would place on reporting labor organizations. Additionally, upon consideration of the comments received, the Department withdraws the provisions of the rule pertaining to the revocation of a small union's authorization to file a Form LM-3 report due to delinquency or deficiency in filing such report, because the revocation standards and procedures are not based upon realistic assessments of such a union's ability to file the more complex Form LM- 2 and thus are unlikely to achieve the intended goals of greater transparency and disclosure. Moreover, the revocation provisions did not adequately balance the need for transparency with the burden placed upon smaller labor organizations.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2009/10/13/E9-24571/labor-organization-annual-financial-reportsFR-Doc-E9-24571

Executive Order 13496 (``the Executive Order,'' ``the Order,'' or ``EO 13496'') requires nonexempt Federal departments and agencies to include within their Government contracts specific provisions requiring that contractors and subcontractors with whom they do business post notices informing their employees of their rights as employees under Federal labor laws. The Executive Order requires the Secretary (``Secretary'') of the Department of Labor (``Department'') to initiate a rulemaking to prescribe the size, form, and content of the notice that must be posted by a contractor under paragraph 1 of the contract clause described in section 2 of the Order. Under the Executive Order, Federal Government contracting departments and agencies must include the required contract provisions in every Government contract, except for collective bargaining agreements and contracts for purchases under the Simplified Acquisition Threshold, and except in those cases in which the Secretary exempts a contracting department or agency with respect to particular contracts or subcontracts or class of contracts or subcontracts pursuant to section 4 of the Order. As required by the Executive Order, this proposed rule establishes the content of the notice required by the Executive Order's contract clause, and implements other provisions of the Executive Order, including provisions regarding sanctions, penalties, and remedies that may be imposed if the contractor or subcontractor fails to comply with its obligations under the Order and the implementing regulations.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2009/08/03/E9-17577/notification-of-employee-rights-under-federal-labor-lawsFR-Doc-E9-17577

On February 3, 2009, the Department's Employment Standards Administration (ESA) Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) published a request for comments about issues of law and policy raised by this rule (74 FR 5899), consistent with directions from the new Administration to review all regulations that had not yet become effective. On February 20, 2009, the Department of Labor postponed the effective date of this rule until April 21, 2009, to allow additional time for the Department to review comments received pursuant to the earlier notice, which were due by March 5, 2009, and to permit labor unions to delay development and implementation of costly changes to their accounting and recordkeeping systems and procedures pending this review. A further extension of the rule's effective date and an extension of the rule's applicability date were proposed on March 19, 2009, and the effective date is delayed until October 19, 2009 in a document published elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register. Upon consideration of the comments received on questions of law and policy raised by the January 21 rule, the Department proposes its withdrawal, because the rule was issued without an adequate review of the Department's experience under the relatively recent revisions to Form LM-2 in 2003 and because the comments indicate that the Department may have underestimated the increased burden that would be placed on reporting labor organizations by the January 21 rule. Finally, the Department has concluded, based on the comments received, that the provisions related to the revocation of a small union's authorization to file a simpler form because it has been delinquent or deficient in filing that form are not based upon realistic assessments of such a union's ability to file the more complex form and are unlikely to achieve the intended goals of greater transparency and disclosure.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2009/04/21/E9-9175/labor-organization-annual-financial-reportsFR-Doc-E9-9175

The changes are made pursuant to section 208 of the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (``LMRDA''), 29 U.S.C. 438.
