Paid Sick Leave Soon Required

October 3, 2016

On September 29, the Department of Labor released its final rule requiring federal contractors to provide their employees with at least one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours of work in connection with a covered contract, which must be allowed to accrue to at least 56 hours per calendar year. The rule, published in the Federal Register on September 30 and set to go into effect 60 days thereafter, applies to new contracts—with certain exceptions—that result from solicitations issued on or after January 1, 2017, or that are awarded outside the solicitation process on or after that date.
