AGC held its annual webinar to train construction contractors about the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts on Dec. 5 and 10, 2013.  Archives of each session of the two-part series titled “Davis-Bacon:  Understanding, Influencing, and Complying with Federal Prevailing Wage Requirements” are available for purchase and immediate viewing from AGC’s online bookstore

In the first session (product code WB232), Tim Helm, head of Davis-Bacon enforcement at the U.S. Department of Labor, and Deborah Wilder, prevailing wage attorney and consultant, addressed the Acts’ coverage and compliance issues such as “site of the work” and truck drivers, fringe benefits, apprentices and trainees, and travel-related expenses.  In the second session (product code WB235), Maria Duffy, National Survey Coordinator for the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division, explained the survey process used to establish wage determinations, how to influence the outcome of that process, finding and interpreting the right wage determination, applying the correct classification, what to do if a classification is missing, and how to seek reconsideration of a wage determination.

Also available from the bookstore is the fourth edition of AGC’s Davis-Bacon Compliance Manual (product code 2010).  The 176-page book is a must-have reference for contractors with federal or federally assisted construction contracts.  AGC members can access additional resources on Davis-Bacon for free in the Labor & HR Topical Resources area of the AGC website by selecting the main category “Compensation” and subcategory “Davis-Bacon Act.”
