In early December, 2014, the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor issued a Fact Sheet on Raising the Minimum Wage for Workers with Disabilities Under Executive Order 13658. Executive Order 13658, “Establishing a Minimum Wage for Contractors” was signed by President Obama on February 12, 2014. This Order establishes a minimum wage to be paid to workers performing on or in connection with a covered contract with the Federal Government. Workers covered by this Executive Order, including workers with disabilities whose wages are determined pursuant to certificates issued under section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
Every covered worker performing work on or in connection with a covered contract must be paid no less than $10.10 per hour beginning January 1, 2015. Beginning January 1, 2016, and annually thereafter, this amount may be increased to an amount determined by the Secretary of Labor based on inflation.
