ABC Protects Your Business with Legal Services


ABC believes that employees and employers should have the right to determine wages and working conditions, through either individual or collective bargaining, as they choose, within the boundaries of the law. The employer must have concern for the general welfare of the employee and there must be fair compensation for work performed. By the same token, we believe that the employee has an obligation for satisfactory performance of assigned work.

ABC supports sound legislation in the areas of labor relations, immigration, safety and other areas of employment. Legislation that embraces fair play for both employer and employee is essential to the preservation of our free enterprise system. The law should protect the right of employees to work regardless of race, color, creed, age, sex, national origin, membership or non-membership in a labor organization or other protected class.

ABC members can receive some of the best legal assistance that is available in the construction industry. ABC’s legal program advances the merit shop principles, resulting in a stronger industry, and helps
ABC members with practical advice when they need it.

Legal Counsel

When unexpected legal problems occur, ABC members are eligible to receive an initial consultation with the chapter’s legal counsel, Jody Duvall, on a complimentary or reduced-fee basis.

Jody Duvall currently represents clients in all facets of labor and employment law before administrative agencies, including the National Labor Relations Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the Colorado Civil Rights Division, as well as in state and federal courts.

Labor Relations

The helpful literature includes ABC’s Labor Relations Fact File, which outlines the responsibilities of merit shop contractors to ensure that their labor practices adhere to current law, and Building and Protecting Your Company’s Reputation, which is a primer on what contractors can do to protect their companies.
