Augment your compliance training and internal controls programs. The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR 52.203-13), entitled Contractor Code of Business Ethics and Conduct, requires contractors not represented as small businesses to establish an ongoing business ethics awareness and compliance program, as well as effective internal controls. Purchasing compliance resources can augment your company’s code of ethics and training programs by providing specific guidance on contractual obligations. Training can also be a significant part of an internal control system.

As a federal contractor, you now face unprecedented new labor requirements. Litigation rates are also at an all-time high — and this crush of lawsuits will likely continue to grow. Not adequately meeting your ever-increasing legal obligations can have a detrimental effort on your bottom line — and your ability to maintain federal contractor status. You cannot afford to be a step behind.

Gain in-depth, one-stop analysis on contractor-related labor and employment issues with Thompson’s new Government Contractor's Guide to Employment Law Compliance. This comprehensive resource gives you the necessary tools to comply with your expanding legal responsibilities and to anticipate the costs of compliance when preparing government contract proposals.
