Department of Labor Schedules Prevailing Wage Seminars

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) has scheduled six upcoming 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 will address such topics as the process of obtaining wage determinations and adding classifications, compliance assistance and enforcement procedures, and the process of appealing wage rates. There is no cost to attend, but space is limited. 

The upcoming seminars will be held on the following dates:

  • May 3-5 in Minneapolis, MN;
  • May 23-25 in Charlotte, NC;
  • June 7-9 in Stamford, CT;
  • June 14-16 in Albuquerque, NM; and
  • August 23-25 in Portland, OR.

To register, visit the WHD’s website. Because this is not an AGC-affiliated event, interested parties should contact the WHD at 1-866-487-9243 for more information. 

Those who are not able to attend may find additional guidance on the AGC website.  Resources such as AGC’sDavis-Bacon Compliance Manual Fourth Edition and AGC’s recently recorded webinars on Understanding Davis-Bacon Compliance and Enforcement Part 1 and Part 2 are located in 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 5, 2016, in conjunction with AGC’s Construction HR and Training Professionals Conference.  The Conference will be held October 5-7 in Chicago, Illinois.  For more information on the conference, visit
