DOL Requires Federal Contracors to Offer Paid Sick Leave

U.S. Department of Labor plans to issue proposed new regulations  by September 30, 2016 seeking to require certain parties that contract with the Federal Government to provide their employees with paid sick leave. The impact of the Department's NPRM, if finalized, would be substantial. 

In the meantime, covered employers should take steps now to ensure that they are aware of what will need to be done to comply with the Order and are in position to execute on those changes and update their policies when the final rule is issued.
