White HouseLast week, President Trump rescinded Executive Order (EO) 13495, the Nondisplacement of Qualified Workers Under Service Contracts. President Obama issued this order in January 2009, along with two other EOs that directly impact Federal contractors. Under the old EO, companies assuming performance of an existing contract were required to offer employees of the existing contractor first right of refusal when staffing for the new contract. The EO also required all Federal contractors to display a poster informing employees of their rights. This recession also terminated any investigations or compliance actions based on Executive Order 13495.
