Are you in compliance with recent changes?

Federal government contractors face greater labor and employment law compliance challenges than ever before in light of the new legislative and regulatory landscape in which they operate.  The following are only some of the changes with which federal contractors must now comply or be prepared to comply in the near future:

  • President Obama’s pro-labor 2009 Executive Orders requiring contractors to inform employees of their federal labor rights, requiring incoming contractors to offer jobs to outgoing contractors’ employees, and prohibiting the use of federal funds for union organizing-related expenses. 
  • The U.S. Department of Labor’s increased enforcement of prevailing wage statutes, such as the Service Contract Act and the Davis Bacon Act, as well as the other laws and regulatory requirements it enforces.
  • The OFCCP’s increased enforcement of Executive Order 11246’s affirmative action and non-discrimination requirements.
  • Use of E-Verify to determine employment eligibility.
  • The prohibition on U.S. Department of Defense contractors and subcontractors requiring employees to arbitrate Title VII and related tort claims.

Please join us for an informative briefing on the above issues and others confronting federal contractors.
