New Executive Order Mandating Sick Leave for Government Contractors

Posted by Mike Anderson on Wed, Nov 23, 2016 @ 03:54 PM

On September 7, 2016, President Barack Obama signed Executive Order 13706 which will mandate Paid Sick Leave for Federal Contractors in future procurements. Basically, the regulation will apply to all new contracts for services and construction, as well as .,ct-like instruments for services covered by the Service Contract Act, Davis-Bacon Act or the Fair Labor Standards Act. It mandates that contractors must ensure employees on those contracts can earn up to 7 days or more per year of paid sick leave. This includes leave for family care. It further specifies that these employees shall earn not less than 1 hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked.

The order does specify that the contractor is not obligated to pay the employee for any unused hours upon termination, however.
