Federal government contractors are required to comply with a number of labor and employment laws, some of which have no counterpart in the commercial world. Through issuance of Executive Orders and implementing regulations as well as other initiatives that impact a contractor's HR organization, contractors have had to adjust and make changes to their HR policies and procedures in order to remain compliant and eligible to receive government contracts.

This webinar focuses on a number of key issues aside from the recent Fair Pay and Safe Workplace rules/executive order which are the topic of a separate Federal Publications Seminars webcast. This webinar will:
  1. provide an overview of why federal contractors have been receiving attention in the form of Executive Orders and implementing rules as well as initiatives that have HR implications;
  2. address several key Executive Orders and their implementation, including Establishing Paid Sick Leave for Federal Contractors, Nondisplacement of Qualified Workers Under Service Contracts, Updating and Modernizing Overtime Regulations, Establishing a Minimum Wage for Contractors, and Strengthening Protections Against Trafficking in Persons in Federal Contracts; and
  3. explain the HR aspects of other important initiatives and rules, including the recent National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM) change that requires contractors to establish and maintain a program to detect, deter and mitigate insider threats by November 30, 2016, and a proposed FAR rule that seeks to ensure that employees are not restricted from lawfully reporting fraud, waste, or abuse to federal authorities.
