Labor Department Creates Davis-Bacon YouTube Video

The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) of the U.S. Department of Labor recently created a YouTube video explaining the Davis-Bacon Act, the law that gives the department authority to determine the payment of local prevailing wage and fringe benefit payments for laborers and mechanics working under construction contracts with the federal government and the District of Columbia.   The 14-minute video includes an overview of the Davis-Bacon Act and its application to projects funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and additional resources available to the public.

While the video was created for the President’s Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, construction contractors may find it useful as a brief overview of the law when on-boarding project managers and other staff who will be responsible for the company’s compliance with the Davis-Bacon Act.

The video is presented by Timothy Helm, head of Davis-Bacon enforcement for the WHD, and co-presenter during AGC’s webinar, The Davis-Bacon and Related Acts: The Ins and Outs of Federal Prevailing Wage Law. Helm partnered with attorney and Davis-Bacon compliance expert Deborah Wilder of Contractor Compliance and Monitoring, Inc, to offer an insightful three-hour webinar presentation covering such topics as wage determinations, site of work issues, coverage of truck drivers, apprentices and helpers, fringe benefit requirements, overtime issues, certified payrolls, subcontractor reporting, enforcement initiatives and more. Ezekiel Arvizu, Corporate Compliance/Diversity Representative for Sundt Construction, moderated the webinar, addressing the most common compliance issues faced by contractors.
