TX Judge Blocks NLRB Rule Meant to Sanction Labor Law Violators

Published: October 25, 2016

A Texas judge issued a preliminary injunction on October 24 against new regulations that require companies disclose labor law violations they committed in the past three years when they bid on a federal contract worth over $500,000.

The regulations stem from a 2014 executive order from President Obama and were set to take effect today. In the court order, the Judge, Marcia A. Crone, sided with business groups that the regulations were unfair to them and their operations.
