AGC Offers Webinar on Davis-Bacon Act and New Federal Contractor Minimum Wage Law

The Davis-Bacon and Related Acts (“DBRA”) — prevailing wage laws that cover most federal and federally assisted construction projects — impose a plethora of often-confusing mandates.  Federal contractors and their subcontractors also face new rules (often referred to as the “10.10 Rule”) establishing a special minimum wage for employees who work on or in connection with a Davis-Bacon covered contract.  Failure to comply with these laws puts covered contractors at risk of catastrophic consequences, from high-dollar penalties to debarment.  On December 9 and 10, AGC of America will conduct a two-part webinar to help such contractors’ HR and other compliance personnel better understand the mandates and avoid those risks.

The first session, on Dec. 9 starting at 2:00 p.m. EST, will address DBRA coverage and compliance issues that particularly present pitfalls. The second session, on Dec. 10 starting at 2:00 p.m. EST, will address issues and best practices in worker classification (paying workers the proper rate) as well as important nuances of the 10.10 Rule. Learning objectives include how to:

  • properly select and read a wage determination;
  • use the federal conformance process;
  • properly complete certified payroll records;
  • use the federal conformance process;
  • apply the DBRA to off-site operations, truck drivers, independent contractors, apprentices, trainees, and helpers;
  • comply with DBRA overtime, fringe benefit, and travel expense requirements;
  • ascertain which wage determination classification applies to employees;
  • demonstrate compliance through effective recordkeeping;
  • best respond to allegations in DOL investigations to minimize the risk of liability;
  • determine whether your company is subject to special minimum wage mandates;
  • determine which workers are entitled to the special minimum wage; and
  • prepare for annual changes in the federal contractor minimum wage rate.

The faculty includes Tim Helm, head enforcer of Davis-Bacon at the U.S. Department of Labor, and attorneys David Fortney and Judy Kramer of the law firm Fortney Scott. HRCI approval is pending.
