A contractor’s violations of 14 federal statutes (and equivalent state statutes) must be taken into account by contracting agencies when considering contract awards, according to an Executive Order signed by President Obama on July 31, 2014. The ADA, FMLA and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act are among the 14 listed statutes.  For additional information about the Executive Order from our Affirmative Action and OFCCP Defense Practice Group, click here.
