Anti-Trafficking Rules Raise Contractor Compliance Concerns
Sep.27.2013 — Government Contracts Law360
Washington, D.C.-based Government Contracts Group partner, Peter Eyre, speaks to Government Contracts Law360 about new anti-trafficking regulations. The regulations are aimed at fighting human trafficking and implement parts of the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act and a September 2012 executive order on trafficking that force prime contractors to take more responsibility for vetting their subcontractors and recruiters. According to Eyre, "The question is going to be: What else might the government expect above and beyond those minimum requirements? It's unclear what entity will opine on the sufficiency of these plans, and that too is a likely area for comment."
