Federal Contract Laws

What is a federal contract?

A "Federal contract" is any contract among a subdivision, or organization of the Federal Government, and whichever individual for the buy, auction, or use of merchandise or services. A "Federal subcontract" is a contract or agreement with a Federal service provider either (1) for the providing of materials or services or for the use of genuine or private possessions. This is essential to the presentation of any one or more Federal contracts. (2) Under which all segments of the Federal contractor’s responsibility in any agreement is performed, undertaken, or assumed. Therefore, some but not all agreements with a Federal contractor would trigger treatment under the laws administered by OFCCP.

When people are faced with, situations like these other questions tend to arise. The Experts can help answer questions pertaining to federal contract questions. Listed below are five of the top federal contract questions.

If someone works under a federal security contract, because of recent unionization, and the company is mandating their H & W to be put into a 401k. how do can they opt out?

The individual has the right to opt out and simply affirm that they would like extra cash for the 401k in its place of the 401k itself.

Can federal contracts require a management person named in the contract to be at work for an unlimited time?

There are no federal bylaws regarding to how many hours a individual might be obligated to perform, excluding for definite very particular fields (such as pilots and extended tow truckers).

If the individual is being compensated properly by the agreement, then such an agreement will not be in infringement of any current bylaws.

Out of state company wins bids on federal contract in California; contract has incumbents working the positions from the previous contract. What rights do the current employees have?

If this is not specified in the federal agreement then the fresh service provider could fire each present worker. Many times the out of State Corporation would move towards and give the jobs back to each of the present workers. However, except it is in the real new agreement that they are required to maintain the present workers they have a right to fire them.

If someone works for the federal government under contract with Dell Perot and was notified that their hourly pay was going to be cut, because the government told them to pay according to the WD tables. Is these legal?

In many cases, with such a government agreements, salary is settled on harmony with detailed obligations. The agreements and appropriate law calls for this. The individual can look at this government website for more information: http://www.wdol.gov/.

If someone is a Contract Employee working at a federal agency. Can they be terminated, for trying to bring a union on board, for them to join on the party’s off time and off the job site? The party’s supervisor commented that she would fire anyone who tried to get a union.

A federal by law forbids a company from getting even towards a employee/worker that attempts to put in order a union. It is identified as an inequitable labor practice. Here is a link from the Federal Labor Relations Authority that gives details for what an individual could do when a company attempts to avoid union organization: http://www.flra.gov/filing_ulp

Federal contracts are complicated and the way they are set up may be confusing to the employee. When questions arise regarding federal contracts, federal contract laws, or how a federal contract should be written, then the Experts can be an affordable way to gain the information and answers that maybe needed.

Recent Federal Contract Questions

  • What do you do if someone pushes you as you are in the door

    What do you do if someone pushes you as you are in the door as they are trying to get out of a room? This person did not have to leave at that moment but did not want to have a conversation. I have two large bruises from the incident.
  • My employer didn't notify me about the open enrollment ending

    My employer didn't notify me about the open enrollment ending yesterday. Now they say I cannot get health insurance for the entire year of 2015. Do I have a legal case against them?
  • Our Vice President of the Amvet Ladies Auxiliary of Michigan

    Our Vice President of the Amvet Ladies Auxiliary of Michigan was going to resign at our last meeting. She did announce this then. Meanwhile, it has gotten out of hand with our Auxiliary President. She has already appointed without hardly any members present or knowing about it a new Vice President and so forth. The Vice President never gave a written letter to the President, as she did decide not to resign. In other words, the President wrote a letter herself wanting her to sign it saying that she will resign. Meanwhile, she has already appointed another to take her place before she has actually resigned. This does not seem right to me at all.
    Please let me know as we need to know soon.
    Thank you,
    Ann
