On Nov. 28, ABC will offer the webinar “DOL Training on Paid Sick Leave for Federal Contractors” at 2 p.m. EDT. The webinar will cover the Paid Sick Leave for Federal Contractors final rule issued by the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) on Sept. 30, 2016, which implements President Obama’s E.O. 13706. 

The final rule requires certain federal contractors to offer employees up to seven days (56 hours) of paid sick leave annually, including paid leave for family care. It went into effect on Jan. 1, 2017, and applies to new contracts and replacements for expiring contracts with the federal government that result from solicitations issued on or after Jan. 1, 2017 (or that are awarded outside the solicitation process on or after Jan. 1, 2017).

Representatives from the WHD will lead the webinar and provide training on the final rule’s requirements to assist federal contractors with compliance. ABC members can register here.
