Additionally, federal contractors and subcontractors are prohibited from discriminating against applicants and employees for asking about, discussing, E:\FR\FM\30OCN1.SGM 30OCN1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 68934 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 211 / Friday, October 30, 2020 / Notices or sharing information about their pay or, in certain circumstances, the pay of their co-workers.
