Pursuant to the Government in the Sunshine Act, 5 U.S.C. 552b, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights will hold a public briefing to examine the exemption under the Fair Labor Standards Act—the section 14(c) waiver program—which permits employers to pay less than the minimum wage to individuals with disabilities. In April 2018, the U.S. Department of Labor reported that more than 1,800 employers held a waiver of minimum wage requirements, affecting at least some 150,000 workers. Reliable reports indicate that many employers with 14(c) certificates pay far below prevailing or minimum wage while segregating these employees from the non-disabled workforce. The Commission will investigate whether this violates the civil rights of people with disabilities. The Commission will analyze the use of the 14(c) waiver program, its effect on people with disabilities, and oversight by the Departments of Labor and Justice. This briefing is open to the public. We will offer an open comment session in which members of the public will have an opportunity to address the Commission; detailed information, including on registering for a threeminute speaking slot, can be viewed here.
