Affirmative action steps are required under Executive Order 11246 and other federal executive orders and statutes to ensure that government contractors not only avoid discrimination, but also provide advancement opportunities for minorities, women, disabled individuals and veterans.
We know that ignoring those orders can result in contract cancellation and even debarment from future work.
To avoid these consequences, many contractors turn to our Labor and Employment team to develop these required written affirmative action plans and to advise management concerning compliance with affirmative action regulations.
Our highly experienced lawyers utilize the most up-to-date statistical and census information to build the most effective plan for your company.
Our labor lawyers also represents employers in audits, investigations, administrative proceedings and litigation involving affirmative action requirements.
Our Labor and Employment team also assist employers in their efforts to comply with federal, state and local minority business enterprise (MBE), women-owned business enterprise (WBE) and similar regulations.
