Nondisplacement of Qualified Workers (Jan 2013)
Executive Order 13496, “Nondisplacement of Qualified Workers under Service Contracts,” signed by President Obama on January 30, 2009 applies to federal government service contracts. It requires that qualified workers on a Federal service contract who would otherwise lose their jobs as a result of the completion or expiration of a contract be given the right of first refusal for employment with the successor contractor. Generally, a successor contractor may not hire any new employees under the contract until this right of first refusal has been provided. The Executive Order applies to a successor contract for the performance of the same or similar services at the same location.
The Executive Order (subject to certain exceptions) to all service contracts and their solicitations that succeed contracts for the same or similar service at the same location. The Executive Order defines service contracts or contract to mean any contract or subcontract for services entered into by the Federal Government or its contractors that I covered by the McNamara-O’Hara Service Contract Act.
