Emergency Paid Sick Leave for COVID-19: What Government Contractors Need to Know

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

To date, Congress has enacted three pieces of legislation, described as “phases 1 through 3,” to respond to the COVID-19 epidemic. This legislation has both expanded requirements for sick leave and provided additional funding for contractors who have incurred costs retaining employees that are unable to work due to the closure of a federal site. Relevant provisions of the legislation, and the class deviation issued by the Department of Defense (“DoD”) for implementation of the CARES Act requirements in the DoD Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (“DFARS”) which we previously addressed in this blog on April 9, are discussed here.

Members of the Dentons’ Government Contracts Practice Group are available to assist government contractors regarding their obligations for paid sick leave under new or existing Federal legislation.
