The Service Contract Act punishes Federal contractors who withhold monetary compensation from employees. Federal contractors are required to take affirmative action to employ qualified veterans. Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires that Federal contractors and subcontractors ensure that qualified individuals with disabilities and disabled veterans have an equal opportunity for employment.
These are only a few of the civil rights laws governing the workplace environment with a Federal contractor.
