Actionable Analysis of FAR / DFAR Clauses Relating to Employer and Employee Conduct Requirements

Pillar’s service is offered through an annual subscription ($175) for access to information which is updated continuously to reflect legal and regulatory changes.  The information provided is a comprehensive guide to the employment requirements as a condition of a federal contract or subcontract, including e-verify, ethics, wage and hour, equal opportunity / affirmative action, and union related requirements.  It addresses contracts for Supplies, Services and Construction, includes all employee notice (with samples of each), reporting and record maintenance obligations, requirements for subcontracts and a detailed discussion of each law and executive order, its coverage thresholds by type and amount of contract and subcontract, its specific requirements, and its regulations, including the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and contract clauses (both civilian agency and DoD) which implement the requirements.

The information can be viewed in an internet browser, is presented in a form which is easily navigated, contains summary tables of the requirements, and contains hyperlinks to move within the material and to external links.

The writing and editorial review for the information is performed by a small group of attorneys and former supervisory employees for the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division and Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs.  Additionally, the information provided contains hyperlinked citations to the specific authority for each contractual obligation.

For contract administrators and contract managers, the information provides up to date and accurate descriptions of the conditions for coverage and specific requirements of each law and executive order, for both contracts and subcontracts, including rules regarding ethics of a contractor and its employees in pursuit and in performance of a contract.  For human resources specialists, the information provides specific requirements for e-verify, wage and hour and equal opportunity / affirmative action obligations.  For legal professionals, the information provides hyperlinked citations to specific authorities and guidance.  For smaller contractors and subcontractors who do not employ contract administrators, contract managers, human resources or affirmative action specialists, the service provides concise descriptions of requirements, which will give you confidence that you are meeting contractual obligations related to employment.

By utilizing Pillar’s service, a contractor saves time and money on additional professional services by gaining a comprehensive knowledge, and needing additional professional services for narrower issues rather than also an overview of the requirements - which are described clearly herein. The service is priced such that it would pay for itself many times over versus engaging a professional to review or explain the requirements.

"I have been involved in developing Affirmative Action Programs for large computer and defense contractors since the 1980’s, and have seen the number of federal fair employment laws and regulations rise substantially. Your service provides me an additional source of expertise in key areas of concern. The material is easy to navigate and comprehensive. As I prepare my annual legal and regulatory update, as well as the Required Training for employment decision makers I will rely heavily on this tool to insure both accuracy and completeness."
