Recently, the Wage and Hour Division of the Department Labor (“DOL”) proposed regulations designed to implement President Biden’s Executive Order 14055, concerning the nondisplacement of qualified workers under federal service contracts (the “Order”).  The Order requires federal contractors and subcontractors to offer qualified service employees working on a contract the right of first refusal of employment under a successor contract when a service contract expires and a follow-on contract is awarded for the same or similar services.  The Order is intended to reduce disruption and offer a seamless transition for experienced employees already familiar with the Federal Government’s personnel and requirements.

As companies continue to struggle with staffing shortages, many employers may consider offering bonuses or other incentives to employees as a means of attracting talent to their workforce.  While this may be a prudent and effective means of hiring and retaining employees, companies should be aware of the potential overtime implications arising from awarding certain bonuses to nonexempt employees.
