  Wage-Hour Administrator to Discuss the Davis-Bacon Survey Process
Al Robinson, acting administrator of the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor’s Employment Standards Administration, will speak at AGC’s 2004 Midyear Meeting at a forum called The Federal Prevailing Wage Determination Process: How it Works, How it Could Be Improved, and How it Affects Your Business.

The Forum, which is sponsored by the Open Shop Committee and the Federal and Heavy Contractors Division, will take place on September 30 at 1:00 p.m.  The Midyear Meeting will be held September 30 - October 2, 2004, at the beautiful J.W. Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix, AZ. 

Robinson has been asked to discuss the findings of a Labor Department-commissioned study by McGraw-Hill on the effectiveness of the current process for determining prevailing wage rates under the Davis-Bacon Act and any plans to take action in response to those findings.  He was appointed to his position by Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao effective June 14, when Administrator Tammy D. McCutchen resigned in order to return to law firm practice.

The session will also feature a discussion of the current process and local AGC efforts to improve the outcome.  If your chapter has regularly taken an active role in attempting to affect prevailing wage determinations, please contact Denise Gold, AGC’s Associate General Counsel for Labor and Employment Law, via e-mail at goldd@agc.org or via telephone at (703) 837-5326.
