Later this month, the GSA will issue a refresh to all GSA Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) to incorporate new provisions and clause updates. Even if you are already a GSA Schedule holder, keep reading – a bilateral modification will be issued for your contract.
Among the changes in the refresh are the following:
Paid Sick Leave for Federal Contractors.
For solicitations and contracts subject to the Service Contract Labor Standards statute, the refresh adds FAR 52.222-62, Paid Sick Leave Under Executive Order 13706, which requires contractors to allow all employees performing work under a covered contract to accrue and use paid sick leave in accordance with E.O. 13706 and 29 CFR Part 13. Covered contracts are contracts and subcontracts at all tiers performed in whole or in part in the United States that are covered by the Service Contract Labor Standards statute.
