this employer to the wages and benefits provided for in a union contract entered into by a prior contractor. This applies to contracts where the principle purpose of the contract is to furnish services through the use of service employees. There is an exemption for executives or professional employees who meet certain federal guidelines (United States Department of Labor, 2009). Again, this is in contrast to other non-federal contractors who again, are bound by state law and the Fair Labor Standards Act, which requires employees to pay at least minimum wage and basic benefits. Almost all federal compensation/wage legislation carry some sort of penalty for failure to comply. It would be very important that this company analyze what types of jobs they are doing and which federal legislation applies to them. This would help prevent incurring federal penalties for violations. References

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
