Implementation of Section 3610 of the CARES Act – Reimbursement for Private Employees Who Possess Security Clearances but Cannot Work

Section 3610 of the CARES Act authorizes Federal agencies to reimburse Federal contractors (and subcontractors) for paid leave to maintain a ready workforce. This authority applies to contractors and subcontractors who, because of the nature of their job responsibilities, cannot work off-site, and cannot perform work on-site due to closures. These are individuals who possess security clearances and must access classified information to perform their work.
