Course Description:

Under the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces executive order, you need a clean, three-year compliance record with 14 federal laws, executive orders and state laws … or you can be blacklisted from soliciting government contracts worth over $500,000.

Laws included address wage and hour, safety and health, collective bargaining, family and medical leave, and civil rights protections. Contractors working under Davis-Bacon, the FLSA, SCA and similar pieces of legislation will also have to provide covered employees with expanded wage statements to covered workers.

Do you know what needs to be on those wage statements, where common compliance pitfalls exist and what violations you must disclose? Here’s how to get answers for protecting your good standing with contracting officials—and your ability to win government business.

In this 90-minute webinar, government contracting attorney Schlomo Katz explains how the long-awaited Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces—or “Blacklisting”—executive order applies to contracts worth over $500,000. You’ll explore what violations (including those involving ethics and integrity) must be disclosed, and changes to make now so you can present contract reviewers with a clean three-year record.

Keep your “responsible source” status. From Davis-Bacon, the Service Contract Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act, to state laws and executive orders, you’ll learn how to avoid compliance pitfalls with wages and hours, safety and health, collective bargaining, family and medical leave, civil rights, and more. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
