Labor Department Publishes Videos on Davis-Bacon Wage Survey Process and Form, Plans More Survey Briefings

The Wage & Hour Division (WHD) recently made available on its website two video presentations for construction employers regarding Davis-Bacon Act wage surveys.  One presentation, the Davis-Bacon Wage Survey Process, explains how Davis-Bacon wages are established, as well as survey instructions and the importance of survey participation.  The other presentation, Completing WD-10, walks construction contractors through the process of completing Form WD-10, the Davis-Bacon wage survey form.  The videos were created in response to a request from AGC to make information more easily accessible to contractors electronically, rather than requiring travel to live, in-person events.  Both videos are located on WHD’s website. 

In an effort to increase survey participation among contractors, WHD informed AGC that it is also planning to test the use the webinars to conduct pre-, mid- and post-survey briefings.  Historically, the agency only conducted pre-survey briefings to educate contractors prior to the start of Davis-Bacon wage survey.  Pre-survey briefings were live, in-person events that required employers to miss time away from the office to travel to and attend such events.   According to WHD, adding mid-survey briefings will help to educate contractors and interested parties on the status of a survey that is in-progress.  Post-survey briefings will be provided once a Davis-Bacon wage determination is published, where WHD will provide contractors with information regarding the results of the survey and the published rates.

For more information about Davis-Bacon wage surveys, including survey status by state, visit WHD’s website.  For more information about the Davis-Bacon Act, visit AGC’s Labor & HR Topical Resources webpage.  The primary category is “Wages & Benefits.” The secondary category is “Davis-Bacon Act.”
