A Quick Update on AGC's Litigation Efforts

AGC has notched some big wins in the courts in the last year and hopes to carry that momentum with litigation to protect construction companies.

You may recall, last summer AGC had three wins at the Supreme Court in the Ciminelli caseSackett case, and the Glacier Northwest case. The judicial advocacy continues as AGC is actively challenging government overreach in the courts  —

  1. U.S. DOL’s new Davis-Bacon Prevailing Wage Rule that expands the scope of work covered by the Act and applies Davis Bacon retroactively to already executed contracts. Learn more.
  2. U.S. EPA’s new PFAS Superfund Rule that designates “forever” chemicals as hazardous, imposing significant financial and legal burdens on contractors and could lead to costly litigation and stricter waste disposal practices. Learn more.
  3. U.S. OSHA’s new Walkaround Representative Rule that allows more non-employees to join workplace inspections, thereby infringing on employer rights and increasing risks and costs for contractors.  Learn more.
  4. NLRB’s new Joint Employer Rule that broadens the circumstances under which construction firms are the joint employer of another company’s employees, making them liable for unfair labor practices.  Learn more.
  5. U.S. EPA and USACE’s definition of Waters of the United States that fails to implement US Supreme Court language assessing whether certain features will be considered federally controlled waters. Learn more.

AGC’s involvement as a party/plaintiff in these lawsuits was made possible thanks to your contributions to the Construction Advocacy Fund.
