Executive Order 13706

Tara W. - May 31, 2017
Back to Ask the Experts

I wanted to clarify Executive Order 13706 on paid sick leave for federal contractors. We are not sure we fall under the requirements. We are a collection agency contracted by the department of Education collection on defaulted student loans. The SCA wages do not state it as a required benefit and the Ex Order states that it applies to new contracts and replacements effective 1/1/2017. Our contract was initiated November 2016. It also states it applies to federal contracts for construction and “many types of federal contracts for service.” We didn’t feel it applied to us. But now we are wondering if it does or if we should implement it to error on the side of caution. I would love to hear your thoughts on this matter. Thank you for your time in advance!
