Class Deviation 2010-O0013
Notification of Employee Rights under the National Labor Relations Act

I am issuing this class deviation to implement Executive Order 13496, Notification of Employee Rights under Federal Labor Laws. This class deviation is effective immediately and provides a clause (attached) for all departments and agencies to use in solicitations issued after the effective date and resultant contracts, except for acquisitions-

  • Under the simplified acquisition threshold;
  • For work performed exclusively outside the United States;
  • Covered (in their entirety) by an exemption granted by the Secretary of Labor.

Executive Order 13496, requires contractors to display a notice to employees of their rights under Federal labor laws. The Executive Order applies to contracts resulting from solicitation issued on or after the effective date of the implementing rule issued by the Secretary of Labor. The Department of Labor's final rule implementing Executive Order 13496, codified at 29 CFR part 471, was published on May 20, 2010, with an effective date of June 21, 2010.

The Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations Council and the Civilian Agency Acquisition Council are processing an interim rule under FAR Case 2010-006 to implement the Executive Order and the Department of Labor implementing regulations in the FAR. It is necessary to issue this class deviation in order to enable contractors to comply with the requirements of the Executive Order, pending issuance of an interim rule under FAR Case 2010-006.

This class deviation remains in effect until implemented in the FAR or otherwise rescinded.
