Equal opportunity clause The equal opportunity clause is a statement typically contained in a contractor agreement which asserts the contractor shall not discriminate against employees on the basis of race, religion, national origin, color or sex. It is seen most often in government contracts, and it is required by law for most prime and subcontracts. There is certain language that must be used in the clause, though the specificities depend on several factors, including the monetary value of the contract, how many employees will be contracted and the size of the purchase order. Omission of this clause, when it is required, may constitute a violation of equal opportunity employment laws.
