By the end of 2016, an estimated 73% of companies across different industries will have invested in big data analytics. In the construction industry, however, a mere 6% of professionals are familiar with the concept of the Internet of Things. Construction companies have just started to harness the power of information. The modern construction leader is shifting greater focus to organizational strategy, performance improvement initiatives, and big data mining. By innovating operations with analytics, companies have the opportunity to be on the forefront of a revolution. This session will introduce techniques for data collection and analytic integration to fuel profitability. We will also discuss key areas of the business for implementation and demonstrate accurate analysis methods to support positive organizational transformation.

On Sept. 30, 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor’s (USDOL) Wage and Hour Division issued a final rule requiring certain federal contractors to offer employees up to seven days (56 hours) of paid sick leave annually, including paid leave for family care.

The final rule on paid sick leave for federal contractors went into effect on Nov. 29, 2016, and applies to covered contracts where the solicitation of the contract has been issued or the contract has been awarded outside the solicitation process on or after Jan. 1, 2017. 

The paid sick leave required by the final rule is in addition to a contractor’sobligations under the Service Contract Act (SCA) and Davis-Bacon Act (DBA). Therefore, a contractor may not receive credit toward its prevailing wage or fringe benefit obligation under the SCA and DBA for paid sick leave provided in satisfaction of the requirements of the final rule. 

Under the final rule, contractors must allow employees to use as little as an hour of paid sick leave at a time. In addition, contractors must allow employees to carry over up to 56 hours of unused paid sick leave from year to year while working for the same contractor on covered work.

Join Sarah J. Gorajski of Littler Mendelson P.C . as she discusses the substantial new obligations the final rule imposes on employers with federal government contacts and the actions they should take to be in full compliance.
