Federal Government Service and Construction Contractor Labor Compliance

Holland & Knight Webinar
CLE Available, Webinar
October 19, 2017
12:30 PM - 2:00 PM ET

Even with a new administration, enforcement of labor regulations and new Obama-era Executive Orders remains a priority for the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).

To help government contractors through the maze of requirements, Holland & Knight attorneys Eric Crusius and Terry Elling of the firm's Government Contracts Group will offer a roadmap of the major requirements and pitfalls that have previously trapped contractors. They will also examine the role these labor requirements can have in mergers and acquisitions. Because labor compliance is a company-wide responsibility (corporate executives can be individually debarred for three years by the DOL), the presenters will try and help you think strategically about labor compliance.

This program is designed for government contractors and their executives, attorneys, outside counsel and human resources professionals.

The webinar's objective is to answer the following: 

  • What are the major labor requirements for government contractors? 
  • How will labor requirements, such as the Service Contract Act and the Davis-Bacon Act, impact bidding and pricing strategy? 
  • What due diligence should companies complete when entering into a transaction with contractors subject to these requirements? 
  • How should an organization approach labor compliance? 
  • What happens if the DOL starts an investigation? 
  • How will new requirements (such as sick leave, Nondisplacement of Qualified Workers and the new $10.35 minimum wage) impact current contracts and forthcoming opportunities?
