Daytona Beach Federal Government Contractor Lawyer
The Daytona Beach federal government contractor attorneys with the Lankford Law Firm provide legal counsel and services to incorporated administration contractors across central Florida. Confederate administration contractors are subject to various complicated legal requirements that may not impact other businesses. Even the sharpest business professionals can find it difficult to understand fully the sometimes-convoluted requirements and intricate technicalities of the typical federal contract. So our business lawyers focus on working with and helping Florida businesses that have been awarded a government contract. Our legal team also offers representation if there is a dispute that results in litigation and court proceedings.
AFFIRMATIVE ACTION COMPLIANCE
Many government contractors are subject to affirmative action requirements. Our Florida business attorneys help government contractors to draft and implement affirmative action plans, prepare written guidelines to help contractors identify potential employees who belong to minority groups.
For example, a federal contractor may conduct training programs, outreach efforts, and other activities to encourage the recruitment and hiring of qualified minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and covered veterans. We also help federal contractors understand reporting requirements, conduct internal audits, and train management regarding the practical changes needed for full implementation of the plan. Additionally, we help government contractors to complete, review, and file their EEO-1, VETS-100, and VETS-100A reports.
E-Verify is mandatory for government contractors; it allows employers to confirm a job candidate’s eligibility to work in the U.S. When an employment offer is made, the job seeker must complete an I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form. The employer then enters that information into the E-Verify system. The information is compared to Social Security and Homeland Security records, and the job candidate is either “authorized” or “tentatively non-confirmed.”
The Daytona Beach federal government contractor attorneys at the Lankford Law Firm work with contractors to implement E-Verify, to create or update a background screening plan that considers EEOC guidelines, and to update the application and interviewing process for compliance with always-changing and evolving employment laws and regulations.
