Federal Contractor Sick Leave (EO 13706) Poster
The Federal Contractor Sick Leave (EO 13706) is a workplace posters poster by the Federal Department Of Labor. This poster is mandatory for some employers, including employers working under covered federal contracts.
In 2017, President Obama instituted Executive Order 13706, "Establishing Paid Sick Leave for Federal Contractors". This order requires 1 hour of paid sick leave for each 30 hours worked, up to 56 hours per year. These rules apply to most Federal contracts for services and construction.
