The Coun­ty will not con­tract with oth­er agen­cies, banks, busi­ness­es, ven­dors, etc., who prac­tice or estab­lish a pat­tern of dis­crim­i­na­tion based on sex, col­or, race, reli­gion, age, nation­al ori­gin, polit­i­cal affil­i­a­tion or belief.

(A) The Coun­ty will incor­po­rate into any con­tract for con­struc­tion work, or mod­i­fi­ca­tion there­of, sub­ject to the rel­e­vant rules, reg­u­la­tions, and orders of the Sec­re­tary of Labor or of any pri­or author­i­ty that remain in effect, which is paid for in whole or in part with the aid of such finan­cial assis­tance, the fol­low­ing “Equal Oppor­tu­ni­ty Clause”:

(1) The con­trac­tor will not dis­crim­i­nate against any employ­ee or appli­cant for employ­ment because of race, col­or, reli­gion, sex, dis­abil­i­ty or nation­al ori­gin.  The con­trac­tor will take affir­ma­tive action to ensure that appli­cants are employed, and the employ­ees are treat­ed dur­ing employ­ment, with­out regard to their race, col­or, reli­gion, sex, nation­al ori­gin or dis­abil­i­ty.  Such action shall include, but not be lim­it­ed, to the fol­low­ing: employ­ment, upgrad­ing, demo­tion or trans­fer; recruit­ment or recruit­ment adver­tis­ing; lay­off or ter­mi­na­tion; rates of pay or oth­er forms of com­pen­sa­tion; and selec­tion for train­ing, includ­ing appren­tice­ship.  The con­trac­tor agrees to post in con­spic­u­ous places, avail­able to employ­ees and appli­cants for employ­ment, notices set­ting forth the pro­vi­sions of this nondis­crim­i­na­tion clause.

(2) The con­trac­tor will, in all solic­i­ta­tions or adver­tise­ment for employ­ees places by or on behalf of the con­trac­tor, state that all qual­i­fied appli­cants will receive con­sid­er­a­tion for employ­ment with­out regard to race, col­or, reli­gion, sex, nation­al ori­gin, or disability.

(3) In the event of the contractor’s non­com­pli­ance with the Equal Oppor­tu­ni­ty Clause or with any of the said rules, reg­u­la­tions, and orders, this con­tract may be can­celed, ter­mi­nat­ed, or sus­pend­ed in whole or in part and the con­trac­tor may be declared inel­i­gi­ble for fur­ther gov­ern­ment con­tracts or fed­er­al­ly assist­ed con­struc­tion contracts.

(4) The con­trac­tor will include the pro­vi­sions of this Equal Oppor­tu­ni­ty clause in every sub­con­tract or pur­chase order, unless exempt­ed by the rules, reg­u­la­tions, or orders of the Sec­re­tary of Labor so that such pro­vi­sions will be bind­ing upon each such sub­con­trac­tor or vendor.
