N.Y. Executive Law Section 824
Enforcement


1.

Where it appears that a contractor cannot, after a good faith effort, meet the workforce participation goals set forth in a particular state contract, a contractor may file a written application with the contracting state agency requesting a partial or total waiver of such requirements. Such request shall set forth the reasons for such contractor’s inability to meet the workforce participation goal, specifically describe the reasons for any deviations from the anticipated workforce participation goal set forth in the contractor’s bid or proposal leading to the award of the state contract, and describe the efforts by the contractor and any subcontractors to achieve the maximum feasible participation of minority group members and women in the performance of the work of the state contract. Where the contractor’s inability to achieve the workforce participation goal on a state contract is attributable to the failure of one or more subcontractors to make good faith efforts to achieve the maximum feasible participation of minority group members and women in the performance of the work of the state contract, the contractor shall identify such subcontractor or subcontractors to the contracting state agency.

2.

A state agency shall grant a request for a waiver of workforce participation goals on a state contract where:

(a)

The contractor demonstrates that the contractor and its subcontractors made good faith efforts to achieve the workforce participation goal on the state contract, and that insufficient minority group members or women were available in the construction trades, professions, and occupations required to perform the work of the state contract; or

(b)

The contractor contractually required each of its subcontractors to make a good faith effort to achieve the maximum feasible participation of minority group members and women in the performance of the subcontracted work, periodically monitored such subcontractors’ deployment of minority group members and women in the performance of the subcontracted work, provided notice to such subcontractors of any deficiencies in their deployment of minority group members and women in the performance of such subcontracted work, and could not achieve the workforce participation goal for one or more construction trades, professions, or occupations without the good faith efforts of such subcontractors. * NB Repealed December 31, 2024
