123:2-3-02 Establishment of Affirmative Action Programs.

(A) Contractors and subcontractors with fifty or more employees and a contract of fifty thousand dollars or more must establish an affirmative action program. Contractors and subcontractors are required to exert every good faith effort to accomplish the goals of an affirmative action program. Contractors and subcontractors may obtain an acceptable affirmative action program by either of the following methods:

(1) Contractors and subcontractors may adopt the following state percentage goals for minority utilization work hours. The goals are listed as the proportion of minority workhours to the contractor's or subcontractor's total workforce hours, for all state and non-state construction projects, during the performance of the state contract. The minority work hours are provided by trade and designated geographic area. Where the project is not in one of the designated geographic areas, the contractor or subcontractor may adopt the minority utilization goals of the nearest designated geographic area. The goals are project specific based upon the location of the project site. Contractor's and subcontractor's good faith efforts shall not be determined solely by the contractor's or subcontractor's accomplishment of the utilization work hour goals.

(i) Maintenance of a file of minority and women job applicants and the action taken regarding each applicant, including the reasons therefore.

(ii) Notification to the contracting agency of any labor union practice that impedes the equal employment of minorities and women, including the union's failure to refer minority and women applicants back to the contractor or subcontractor after the contractor's or subcontractor's referral of the applicant to the union.

Contractor's and subcontractor's good faith efforts shall not be determined solely by the contractor's or subcontractor's accomplishment of the utilization work hour goals.

(B) Where a contractor's or subcontractor's contract for a state public works contract exceeds an estimated total cost of five hundred thousand dollars and the contract site is within a designated geographic area, the contractor or subcontractor, regardless of the number employees employed by the contractor or subcontractor, is subject to the rules and regulations set forth in Chapter 123:2-3 to 123:2-9 of the Administrative Code for all state and non-state construction projects within the designated geographic area.

(D) Contractors and subcontractors shall inform subcontractors with fifty or more employees and a contract of fifty thousand dollars or more or a contract that exceeds an estimated total cost of five hundred thousand dollars and the contract site is within a designated geographic area of the requirement to comply with the rules and regulations set forth in Chapters 123:2-3 to 123:2-9 of the Administrative Code. Contractors and subcontractors shall not contract with any subcontractor that has been found to be not responsible for state contracts pursuant to rule 123:2-07-01[123:2-7-01] of the Administrative Code. A contractor's or subcontractor's failure to comply with this requirement shall provide a basis to invoke any of the sanctions set forth in rule 123:2-7-01 of the Administrative Code against the contractor or subcontractor.
