Responsible Contractor Guide


The Responsible Contractor Guide has become a leading resource for business professionals who are hiring and retaining high quality contractors. It is an easy-to-use resource for commercial real estate professionals to determine whether a janitorial or security contractor is a responsible contractor.

“We are recommending the guide to all of our property managers to use as one step in their due diligence.”
– JP Morgan Chase

Our responsible contractors create stable and professional work environments, leading to higher employee productivity and greater client satisfaction. By using a number of tools at their disposal—including fair compensation, training programs and respecting employees’ rights to join together—responsible contractors maintain stable workforces and deliver high quality services.

“The SEIU Responsible Contractor Guide has been provided to our managers as a source for them to find contractors in their area who are paying fair wages and benefits.”

Many of our nation’s largest real estate owners—including pension funds and other institutional investors—have adopted responsible contractor policies to guide their decision-making.

By hiring responsible contractors, owners mitigate the risks associated with labor disruptions while reaping the benefits of employing a stable and fairly compensated high quality workforce.
