President Trump Revokes Executive Order 13495
Last week, President Trump revoked Executive Order (Order) 13495, the Nondisplacement of Qualified Workers, which applied to contracts under the Service Contract Act.
Previously Order 13495, had required that successor federal contractors, in certain circumstances, offer a right of first refusal of employment to employees working under the predecessor contract.
Agencies were instructed to implement the revocation immediately. It included instructions for all agencies and executive departments to rescind any orders, guidelines, rules, programs, or policies implementing or enforcing the previous Order. The Secretary of Labor, who was formerly responsible for ensuring compliance, was also instructed to terminate any investigations or compliance actions related to the last Order 13495.
