For those of you who may enjoy a business on federal land or otherwise have a federal contract of some sort, we remind you that the public comment period for the paid sick leave mandate on federal contractors, closes on Tuesday, April 12.  The DOL regulation mandates that covered employers provide paid sick leave at the rate of 1 hour leave earned for every 30 hours worked – up to 56 hours (7 days) per year and that employees be allowed to accrue and bank their unused paid sick leave from one year to the next.  Comment at referencing Executive Order 13706.
