AAJ STATEMENT ON IMPLEMENTATION OF THE FAIR PAY AND SAFE WORKPLACES EXECUTIVE ORDER
- Require prospective contractors and their subcontractors to disclose labor law violations from the past three years before they are awarded a federal government contract.
- Ensure that corporations that repeatedly violate the rights of their employees and disregard workplace safety don’t receive federal government contracts.
- Require corporations to provide employees with information concerning their hours worked, overtime hours, pay, and any additions to or deductions made from their pay so employees can be sure they’re getting paid what they’re owed.
- Because corporations with workplace violations are more likely to encounter performance problems, today’s action will also improve the efficiency of federal contracting and result in savings to American taxpayers
The American Association for Justice works to preserve the constitutional right to trial by jury and to make sure people have a fair chance to receive justice through the legal system when they are injured by the negligence or misconduct of others—even when it means taking on the most powerful corporations.
