Kansas Government Contractors: What you need to know

Kansas law requires nondiscrimination provisions in every public works contract with the state or one of its political subdivisions. The requirement also applies to contracts for the purchase of materials, equipment, supplies, or services ( KS Stat. Sec. 44-1030et seq.; Sec. 44-1116). The law applies to all contractors with four or more employees or to contractors whose contracts with a government entity total more than $5,000 per fiscal year. Specifically, a contractor must agree:
• To abide by the Kansas Act Against Discrimination (KAAD) and will not discriminate in employment on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, disability, national origin, ancestry, or age
• To include the phrase “equal opportunity employer” in all solicitations or advertisements for employees
• That if it fails to comply with a reporting request from the Kansas Human Rights Commission, its contract may be canceled, terminated, or suspended by the contracting agency
• That if it is found guilty of violating the KAAD, its contract may be canceled, terminated, or suspended by the contracting agency
