All, I am trying to research what provisions or clauses are in Federal contracts that address sexual harassment but also other types of harassment (e.g. race, religion, age, etc) by members of the the contract workforce. I researched the FAR and only found equal opportunity provisions and clauses concerning the contractors own hiring practices. The specific question from my front office asked what we put in our contracts to force the contractor to provide sexual harassment and/or other harassment training to their employees?. I thought that the FAR would have addressed this by now buy my searcch isn't turining up anything. I am still searching some of our contracts for verbiage in SOW, PWS, etc but that is also coming up with zero. I am thinking there may be some agency or locally written clauses available at other agencies that could be shared to save me time. This is a big issue in an organization that may have over half the professional personnel in an office as contract hires. In one case we have 17 Direct Hires managing the workload distribution to over 350 contract personnel. Feds have rules, training, disciplanary processes and appeal processes. What does the contract hire workforce, which may be a conglomeration of employees from a dozen companies in one cube farm have?
