On February 24, 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor released a proposed rule to implement President Obama’s September 7, 2015 Executive Order requiring federal contractors to provide paid sick leave to employees.  The rule is scheduled to be published in the Federal Register on February 25, 2016.

Our original blog post on the executive order can be found here.  We are in the process of reviewing and analyzing the proposed rule and will publish a more detailed post on it in the near future.
