On January 1, 2017, Government contracting agencies began using a new contract clause-- FAR 52.222-62, Paid Sick Leave Under Executive Order 13706. Contractors that have or plan to bid on contracts containing that clause must be prepared to comply or face enforcement actions that can range from having to compensate workers for unpaid leave all the way up to civil actions.

That is why—right now—you must know what is included in the regulations.  You must clearly understand what contracts and employees are or will be covered and what kind of leave-accrual system you will need to have or to put in place. Plus, you will need the right answers on how employees can and can’t use their accrued leave and who will pay the cost of this new benefit.

Let an expert give you the head start you need to be ready—and right.

In this 90-minute webinar, a leading wage-and-hour attorney reveals the pitfalls awaiting government contractors once the sick leave clause is included in a contract. You will explore new responsibilities mapped out in complex requirements about how much leave employers must allow contractors to accrue, how leave is accrued, and what limitations contractors will—and won’t—be able to impose on how workers may use their accrued leave.

Avoid confusion—and penalties.  From damages to debarment, you will learn about the brand-new risks and enforcement actions the sick leave rule includes. You will also learn what to expect in terms of the timeline for finding these requirements in your contracts as well as what you may be required to be doing right now. Plus, you will have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now for expert help avoiding costly violations as the sick-leave rule becomes a reality for contractors, including answers to questions like these:

  • When will the new sick leave regulations take effect?
  • What am I required to do now, and what should I be doing to prepare?
  • ‎Who will be entitled to sick leave?
  • What can sick leave be used for?
  • Who will pay these new costs?

Bottom line: the new regulation will include complex rules on everything from who is covered to how to handle sick leave for employees working on multiple contracts or those performing both covered and non-covered work. Do not miss this opportunity to let an expert show you how to prepare—so you can avoid devastating enforcement actions.
