The final regulations for Executive Order 13706 (“Paid Sick Leave for Workers on Federal Contracts”) were published September 30, 2016.  Under the Executive Order and final regulations, paid sick leave obligations will begin with new solicitations and contracts beginning January 1, 2017.

Do you know if your organization is covered and if so, do you know which of your employees are entitled to paid sick leave? Do you understand how the new paid sick leave obligations work? Have you figured out how to track the hours that your employees work on covered contracts so that paid sick leave accrues properly? Have you thought about what policies and practices you need to have in place and how the new obligations will impact your current policies? Have you considered how to solve the puzzle created by the overlapping and sometimes inconsistent obligations under the Executive Order and state and local paid sick leave laws? If you are a federal contractor, these are some of the questions that should be keeping you up at night as you determine whether and to what extent you need to comply with Executive Order 13706.  If you need help with any of these questions, we’ve got the answers for you.

Join our colleagues Patricia Pryor and Leslie Stout-Tabackman on October 20, 2016 for a complimentary webinar during which they will delve into the details of the new obligations, and discuss how these regulations impact your organization and what you should be doing now to prepare.
