The Changing Compensation Landscape for Government Contractors


Pillsbury attorneys Julia Judish and Rebecca Rizzo have published their client alert titled The Changing Compensation Landscape for Government Contractors, New Executive Order Mandates Paid Sick Leave for Employees of Government Contractors, and Department of Labor Issues Final Rule on Contractor Pay Transparency. The Alert discusses (1) President Obama’s Executive Order issued on Labor Day that will require federal contractors and subcontractors to provide their employees working on covered government contracts with up to 7 days of paid sick leave per year, effective for federal contracts entered into on or after January 1, 2017, and (2) the Department of Labor’s Final Rule on Executive Order 13665 issued on September 11, which amends Executive Order 11246 to prohibit “pay secrecy policies and actions” for government contractors and subcontractors, effective January 11, 2016.
