Executive Order 11246 requires qualifying contractors and subcontractors that work with the government to avoid discrimination of their employees while making decisions. To qualify contractors must have at least 50 employees and contracts of $50,000 or more. Contractors are not allowed to discriminate based on race, sex, national origin, or religion. Additionally, contractors are required by Executive Order 11246 to take affirmative action to prevent discrimination in their organization, including by developing and holding to an Affirmative Action Plan. If contractors are found to be in violation of this executive order, they may be subject to termination, cancellation, or suspension.
