Gesundheit: Proposed Rule Would Mandate Paid Sick Leave for Federal Contractors


On February 25, the Obama Administration published a proposed rule implementing Executive Order 13706, Establishing Paid Sick Leave for Federal Contractors (previously discussed here). The proposed rule, which the Department of Labor estimates would increase benefits for 828,000 federal contractor employees, would require federal contractors to provide employees with up to seven days of paid sick leave annually and impose significant new administrative requirements on contractors, which are likely to be addressed in contractor and industry comments submitted over the next 30 days prior to the publication of the final rule.
