Executive Order 6949—Non-Waiver of Constitutional Rights in Connection with Codes of Fair Competition
By virtue of and pursuant to the authority vested in me by Title I of the National Industrial Recovery Act of June 16, 1933 (48 Stat. 195), and in order to effectuate the policy of said Title and to eliminate any confusion or misapprehension which may have arisen concerning the effect on constitutional rights of assent to, or cooperation under, Codes of Fair Competition, I hereby order that:
(1) It is understood that neither the Government nor any member of industry waives, or can properly insist that the other has waived, any constitutional right pertaining to the Government or to an individual by approving, assenting to, or cooperating under a Code of Fair Competition.
(2) The approval orders of all such codes heretofore approved are hereby modified to the extent necessary to make this Order a condition thereof, and this Order shall operate as a condition of the approval of any such code hereafter approved.
