PilieroMazza’s Labor & Employment Group brings together a highly skilled team of attorneys with substantial experience providing advice and counsel to clients working in the federal procurement space. Drawing on their deep understanding of the complexity of labor and employment issues that government contractors face, our attorneys provide sound strategies and solutions designed to address these challenges head-on.
Whether navigating fine points of the Service Contract Labor Standards (formerly known as the Service Contract Act), the Wage Rate Requirements (Construction) (formerly known as the Davis-Bacon Act), or local prevailing wage laws; defending against Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs claims; conducting internal audits to ensure compliance with government regulations and contract clauses; or drafting policies and procedures, the PilieroMazza team offers comprehensive counsel designed to minimize our clients’ exposure to risk and help recover their costs. Given the nature of government contracts, we regularly work across jurisdictions and are particularly adept at addressing complex multijurisdictional concerns.
The Group has decades of experience helping clients navigate organizing activities. We regularly respond to labor campaigns, address the election and certification process, advise on strike votes, and negotiate collective bargaining agreements. Our in-depth understanding of the unique challenges clients face in pricing unionized opportunities allows us to structure negotiations that comply with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) requirements and strive for outcomes that benefit each client’s bottom line. Knowing that PilieroMazza’s attorneys have a long track record of effectively communicating with government agencies and labor advisors is a particular advantage to clients facing work stoppage threats or events.
