New Paid Sick Leave Mandate For Federal Contractors: Navigating Legal Obligations Under The DOL’s Wage And Hour Division Requirements
|Date / Time:
Starting in 2017, employees performing work on covered contracts with the federal government are entitled to one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours of work, accruing up to 56 hours (or 7 days) of earned paid sick leave per year.
To prepare, you’ll need to consider which medical conditions and other occurrences qualify for this paid sick leave, who’s covered (it’s not just the employee, but his or her family members, too), and how this new law interacts with your current state and federal leave obligations.
So, if you’re a federal contractor or subcontractor, you won’t want to miss our webinar. Attorney Cheryl Behymer, who co-chairs Fisher & Phillip’s Affirmative Action and Federal Contract Compliance Practice Group, will provide up-to-date, clear information about the federal executive order and proposed rules, and what you need to know now to stay in compliance.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
