Contractor Responsibility, Labor Relations Costs, and Costs Relating to Legal and Other Procedures (FAR Case 1999-010)

The FAR Council has determined that the 30-day effective date did not give Federal contractors and the Federal Government sufficient time to meet the new obligations and responsibilities imposed by the December 20, 2000, final rule. Therefore, the FAR Council has decided to stay the effective date of the final rule. During the stay, the FAR text is restored to the text as it existed before January 19, 2001.
