Clients pursue government contracts to make a profit and, since labor is the biggest cost driver in most government contracts, understanding federal labor laws and executive orders that impact those costs is crucial for success. At the same time, failure to comply with federal labor standards requirements can lead to a three-year debarment or exclusion from government contracting--a death sentence for some businesses.

This course, presented by Shlomo D. Katz, group leader of Brown Rudnick's Wage & Hour practice and a member of the firm's Government Contracts practice, reviews government contractors' prevailing wage, fringe benefit and other labor requirements, addresses some of the current legislative and regulatory activity relating to those issues, and offers practical guidance to consider when bidding on or performing government contracts.

Learning Objectives:

Understand the basic requirements of the Service Contract Act, Davis-Bacon Act and significant executive orders impacting government contractors

Review how legal requirements can impact a client’s proposals for government contracts and how clients may be able to use them to improve your competitive position

Discuss how ongoing debates in Congress, as well as the upcoming elections, may affect a contractor’s obligations

How to prepare for and survive a Department of Labor audit
