Federal Contractor Paid Sick Leave in Effect

As the first quarter of 2018 nears its end, and we are adjusting to an extra hour of daylight (and an hour less sleep this weekend) we wanted to take a moment to remind you about the Paid Sick Leave obligations that went into effect in January 2017 for covered contractors.   For a refresher of these obligations, check out the blog post my colleague Megan Holstein and I recently posted.

As a reminder, contracts entered into after January 1, 2017 that fall into one of these four categories are subject to these obligations:

  1. procurement contracts for construction covered by the Davis-Bacon Act (DBA);
  2. services contracts covered by the Service Contract Act (SCA);
  3. concessions contracts, including any concessions contract excluded from the SCA by DOL’s regulations at 29 CFR 4.133(b);
  4. contracts in connection with federal property or lands and related to offering services for federal employees, their dependents, or the general public.

If you haven’t already done so, check your contracts to confirm whether they contain reference to Executive Order 13706Paid Sick Leave for Workers on Federal Contracts.
