Department of Labor Offers Upcoming Prevailing Wage Seminars
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) recently scheduled six seminars throughout the country to educate federal and federally assisted contractors on the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts and other federal contracting wage laws the agency enforces. Each two-and-a-half day seminar addresses such topics as the process of obtaining wage determinations and adding classifications, compliance assistance and enforcement procedures, and the process of appealing wage rates. Topics for a series of special sessions on the final day of the seminars are announced on site.
Previously, seminars were held in New Hampshire, Arizona, and Illinois. The three remaining seminars will be held on the following dates:
- April 22-24 in San Diego, CA;
- May 7-9 in Houston, TX; and
- June 3-5 in Atlanta, GA.
Interested participants should email their name, title, company name, mailing address, email address and phone number, along with the date and location of the seminar they are interested in attending, to email@example.com. A confirmation email will be sent to registrants who have been accepted to participate. There is no cost to attend, but space is limited.
Because this is not an AGC-affiliated event, interested parties should contact WHD at 1-866-487-9243 for more information.
Those who are not able to attend may find additional guidance on the AGC website. For resources such as AGC’s Davis-Bacon Compliance Manual Fourth Edition and AGC Davis-Bacon Act webinars, visit the AGC Bookstore. For guidance and compliance assistance tools, visit AGC’s Labor & HR Topical Resources web page. The primary category is “compensation” and the secondary category is “Davis-Bacon Act.”
Additionally, contractors may learn more about Davis-Bacon compliance at AGC’s Federal Construction HR Workshop, which will be held October 15, 2014, in conjunction with AGC’s Construction HR and Training Professionals Conference. The Conference will be held Oc. 15-17 in Phoenix, Arizona. For more information on the conference, visit www.agc.org/traininghrconference.
