A short time ago, President Trump signed into law new paid leave mandates that will take effect on April 2, 2020, and sunset on December 31, 2020.
Please click below to view a summary of the mandates from AGC of America. While it is a helpful document, we are sure your companies will have many questions. Stay tuned for details on a webinar AGC of America will host on this topic next week to help answer those questions, along with more information.
There remains opportunity to make improvements to these new mandates, as the Senate considers a third COVID-19 relief bill, with rumors of a fourth on the horizon. AGC of America will continue to press for avenues to make such improvements via legislative and regulatory means.
With this new bill under consideration, AGC of America will also be pushing for expedited public owner payments to contractors for losses associated with COVID-19-related project impacts to keep cash flows going, robust investments in infrastructure funding, and the protection of multiemployer pension plans, their participants, retirees and contributing employers—among other policy objectives.
