AGC Debuts NEW Davis-Bacon Compliance Manual with Two-Day Compliance Webinar
With the downturn in the availability of commercial work, many construction contractors are bidding more on federal and federally-assisted work and having to comply with the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts. The application of the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts to all projects funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) has also left many contractors uncertain about the requirements of federal prevailing wage laws and the consequences of non-compliance. AGC is offering two resources to help contractors comply with the requirements of this sometimes complicated law.
AGC's new Davis-Bacon Compliance Manual - Third Edition, authored by Davis-Bacon expert Deborah Wilder, is a must-have for any contractor with existing or prospective federal or federally assisted construction contracts. This tool provides concise, practical information about the prevailing wage requirements and compliance principles of the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts, plus a special section devoted to ARRA. This manual is user-friendly and includes modern examples, references to recent court cases and many sample formulas.
In addition to the compliance manual, AGC will provide a webinar over the course of two days - December 8 and 9 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. EST. Join Wilder and the head of Davis-Bacon enforcement for the U.S. Department of Labor's Wage & Hour Division's Government Contracts Team, Timothy Helm, as they provide the information necessary to understand the specific requirements of the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts in a contractor-friendly manner. They will cover such topics as:
- How wage determinations are published and where to find them;
- How to read wage determinations;
- How to request additional classifications or rate corrections;
- Which classification in the wage determination applies and what is area practice;
- Who is a "laborer or mechanic";
- What is "site of the work";
- Coverage of truck drivers;
- Coverage of apprentices, trainees, and helpers;
- Fringe benefit requirements, credit, and annualization;
- Overtime issues;
- General reporting requirements;
- Certified payroll records;
- Subcontractor reporting;
- Enforcement initiatives;
- Investigation procures;
- Hearings and appeals process;
- Penalties; and
- Where to get assistance.
Each webinar registrant will receive a copy of the presentation slides and handouts used on both days along with a link to the complete audio-recording of the live webinar, including the question-and-answer period. Webinar registrants will also be able to co-order AGC's new Davis-Bacon Compliance Manual - Third Edition for a special discounted price, or purchase the compliance manual independently.
