Federal Contracting
Last Chance to Register for Dec. 10 & 15 Davis-Bacon Webinar

The Davis-Bacon and Related Acts (DBRA) impose numerous, confusing mandates on construction contractors that work under federal and federally assisted contracts. Failure to comply puts covered contractors at risk of catastrophic consequences, from high-dollar penalties to debarment from future federal work.  On December 10 and 15, AGC will conduct a two-part webinar to help such contractors avoid those risks by educating staff tasked with DBRA compliance and administration on coverage, requirements, pitfalls, and enforcement of these laws. Each session will take place from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. EST.

Session 1, on Dec. 10, will address which contracts and employees are covered by the DBRA, where to find additional resources for reference, and how to comply with particularly problematic areas of the laws, such as what is “site of the work,” how to treat truck drivers, independent contractors, survey crews, apprentices, trainees, and helpers, which fringe benefits can be credited toward meeting prevailing wage mandates, how to compute overtime pay; and when contractors are expected to cover employee lodging and other travel expenses.

Session 2, on Dec. 15, will cover how to read wage determinations, how to properly classify workers, when and how to seek a conformance, understanding area practice, best practices for recordkeeping and demonstrating compliance, and how to respond to allegations of misclassification in Labor Department investigations.

Learning objectives include:

  • ​Determine which contracts are covered by the DBRA;
  • ​Comply with Executive Order 13658 Establishing a Minimum Wage for Contractors;
  • Properly select and read a federal wage determination;
  • Use the federal conformance process;
  • Apply the DBRA to off-site operations, truck drivers, independent contractors, survey crews, 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;
  • Properly complete certified payroll records; and
  • ​Best respond to allegations in Labor Department investigations to minimize risks.

The faculty includes Bill Isokait, Senior Compliance Specialist, Branch of Government Contracts Enforcement with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division, and Judy Kramer of the law firm Fortney Scott.
