Nothing to Sneeze at: Obama Administration Issues 13th EO Targeting Federal Contractors

Sep.08.2015

On September 7, the Obama Administration issued a new executive order requiring that federal government contractors provide paid sick leave to employees, the latest in a series of EOs targeting federal contractors, which have to date resulted in 16 new regulations (previously discussed herehere, and here). According to the White House, "[b]eginning with new contracts in 2017, workers will earn a minimum of one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked," which will provide "approximately 300,000 people working on federal contracts the new ability to earn up to seven days of paid sick leave each year."
