AGC to Provide Two-Part, Advanced Davis-Bacon Webinar
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the enactment of the Davis-Bacon Act. So, what has changed in 70 years? While the law itself hasn’t changed much, the administration of the law has changed significantly, causing concern for many contractors with federal and federally assisted construction contracts.  Davis-Bacon wage rates are increasing and so are the Department of Labor’s audit and enforcement efforts.  As a result, AGC will provide a webinar in two sessions – on December 7 and 8 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. EST – on The Davis-Bacon Act Today: What’s New for Federal Construction Contractors.  This advanced-level webinar will explain to construction contractors with federal and federally assisted contracts how things are changing and how to safeguard a company from the risks.

On day one of the webinar, Natalie Boan, branch chief of construction wage determinations in the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD), will educate participants on the wage determinations process, including WHD’s new goals for completing wage surveys and the process for challenging wage determinations.  On day two, Timothy Helm, branch chief of government contracts enforcement for WHD, will partner with attorney and Davis-Bacon compliance expert Deborah Wilder of Contractor Compliance and Monitoring, Inc., to give an insightful look into WHD’s enforcement initiatives and investigation procedures, problem areas that have been routinely found in construction contractor audits, correcting areas during self audits, and more.  SPHR-certified Kris Talynn, director of HR for Okland Construction, will moderate the webinar series, addressing the most common compliance issues faced by contractors and offering subcontractor training tips.

Webinar registrants may co-order AGC’s Davis-Bacon Compliance Manual – Third Edition for a special discounted price, or purchase the webinar independently.
