Law-abiding contractors lose when public contracts are awarded to contractors who cheat. Not only does it encourage companies to underbid contracts, it also pushes right-minded contractors out of business. NYFFC actively monitors the public bidding process to ensure that responsible contractors have a level playing field and public bodies do not reward those who undermine labor laws.
If a contractor is not in compliance with a law or regulation, the NYFFC may bring this information before the relevant agency or public body. Moreover, NYFFC works with contractors to understand their rights and responsibilities under the law. This two-pronged approach of monitoring the bidding process and providing resources to contractors ensures that all wage, hour, safety, and bidding laws are followed and that everyone has a fair shot at public bids.
