On September 13, 2022, the Department of Labor’s Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS) published a proposed revision to the Form LM-10 (Employer Report).
Form LM-10 is required for employers to disclose certain expenditures or arrangements, including “agreements with consultants (and other payments and expenditures) made with an object to persuade employees concerning their organizing and collective bargaining rights or to surveil the activities of employees and unions involved in a labor dispute with such employers.”
The LM-10 revision proposes a checkbox on the form requiring employers to disclose whether they were Federal contractors or subcontractors and two new lines for entering filers’ 1-Unique Entity Identifier and 2-Federal contracting agency/agencies. The proposed revision aims to create transparency to better inform workers when they consider exercising their rights to organize and bargain collectively.
There is a 30-day comment period (closing October 13, 2022) on the proposed revision. Comments may be submitted through the Federal eRulemaking Portal by searching “RIN 1245-AA13” and will be posted without revision, including any personal information entered.
