Davis-Bacon Webinar Recording Now Available

An archive of each session of AGC’s recent two-part webinar on Understanding the Davis-Bacon Act and the New Federal Contractor Minimum Wage Law is now available for purchase and immediate viewing from AGC’s online bookstore.  Visit and search for product codes WB294 and WB295.  Be sure to login to see member pricing.

The webinar was held on Dec. 9 and 10, 2014.  In the first session (product code WB294), Tim Helm, head of Davis-Bacon enforcement at the U.S. Department of Labor, talked about coverage and compliance issues that present pitfalls for many construction contractors.  In the second session, attorneys David Fortney and Judith Kramer of Fortney Scott LLC discussed issues and best practices in worker classification (paying workers the proper rate) as well as the nuances of the new executive order and regulations establishing a special minimum wage rate for federal contractors.

Also available from the bookstore is the fourth edition of AGC’s Davis-Bacon Compliance Manual.  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.”
