New Paid Sick Leave Mandate For Federal Contractors: Navigating Legal Obligations Under the DOL’s Wage And Hour Division Requirements

Webinar: ID# 1023039
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
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 this popular webinar featuring Attorney Cheryl Behymer, co-chair of Fisher & Phillip’s Affirmative Action and Federal Contract Compliance Practice Group, who will share up to date, clear information about the federal executive order and proposed rules, and what you need to know now to stay in compliance.
