As the first quarter of 2018 nears its end, and we are adjusting to an extra hour of daylight (and an hour less sleep this weekend) we wanted to take a moment to remind you about the Paid Sick Leave obligations that went into effect in January 2017 for covered contractors. For a refresher of these obligations, check out the blog post my colleague Megan Holstein and I recently posted.

As a reminder, contracts entered into after January 1, 2017 that fall into one of these four categories are subject to these obligations:

  1. procurement contracts for construction covered by the Davis-Bacon Act (DBA);
  2. services contracts covered by the Service Contract Act (SCA);
  3. concessions contracts, including any concessions contract excluded from the SCA by DOL’s regulations at 29 CFR 4.133(b);
  4. contracts in connection with federal property or lands and related to offering services for federal employees, their dependents, or the general public.
