President Issues Executive Order for Contractors Enforcing Labor Laws

Thursday, August 14, 2014  
President Obama recently issued an executive order that requires all federal contractors and subcontractors on public works projects in excess of $500,000 to report “labor violations” with the last three years with their current bids on contracts. This includes compliance with a list of federal laws, including occupational health and safety, age discrimination, civil rights and the Americans with Disabilities Act, among others. Each contracting agency must now appoint a Labor Compliance Officer, who will look at the track record of compliance for bidders on agency public works projects to determine if the bidder is “responsible” or whether the information from the bidder should be submitted to the agency’s officials in charge of suspending and debarring contractors. The regulations for this still need to be developed, but implementation is projected to be a year away.
