Nebraska Government Contractors: What you need to know

The Nebraska Fair Employment Practices Act prohibits contractors and subcontractors who have contracts with the state from discriminating against any employee or applicant with respect to hiring, tenure, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment because of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin (NE Rev. Stat. Sec. 48-1122). According to state regulations, by signing a bid request, the bidder guarantees compliance with the state Fair Employment Practices Act. The Act also requires every contract to which the state or any of its political subdivisions is a party to contain a nondiscrimination provision. A contractor must insert a similar provision in all subcontracts for services to be covered by any contract resulting from its bid (9 NE Admin. Code Ch. 5, Sec. 006). A breach of the nondiscrimination provision is considered a material breach of contract. Violators will be guilty of a misdemeanor.
