See 80 FR 55646. This Notice of Correction publishes appendices omitted in the prior publication. As indicated in the notice published September 16, 2015, Appendix A to the notice provides a comprehensive chart of the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) (United States city average, all items, not seasonally adjusted) data published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) that the Department utilized to calculate the new Executive Order minimum wage rate based on the methodology explained therein. Appendix B to the notice sets forth an updated version of the Executive Order 13658 poster that the Department published with its Final Rule implementing the Executive Order, reflecting the updated wage rates that will be in effect beginning January 1, 2016.
