Final regulations and guidance for contractors to protect their workers' wages, civil rights, safety, and workplace protections were passed last week - just in time for Labor Day. The final touches to the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order by the FAR Council and the U.S. Labor Department, were approved Aug. 25 - over two years after President Obama signed it on July 31, 2014.
When you are hurt at work, this isn't always the easiest thing to confess to your boss. Maybe you were injured because you were messing around and doing something you weren't supposed to be doing. Maybe your coworker did something wrong, causing your injury, and you don't want to get him or her in trouble. Maybe the injury wasn't really anyone's fault, but you're still worried about how your employer will handle it.
