What is the prime contractor's responsibility in terms of ensuring subcontractors are compliant with this posting? Do we have to visit all their locations to insure their postings are compliant? Would a memo or email suffice?
A prime contractor must insert the contract provisions in all it subcontracts and must not ignore noncompliance of subcontractors. If the Labor Department becomes aware that a significant number of prime contractors are aware of and ignoring the noncompliance of subcontractors, then it may issue an order requiring the prime contractor to make diligent efforts to seek compliance of subcontractors, and the prime contractor may be subject to penalties for disobeying that order.
