U.S. Department of Labor Conducting Wage Survey Of Indiana Residential Construction Projects
INDIANAPOLIS, IN – The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) is conducting a statewide survey of active residential construction projects in Indiana between August 1, 2017, and July 31, 2018, to establish prevailing wage rates, as required under the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts. The data collection initiative is not limited to federally funded construction projects.
“Davis-Bacon prevailing wage rates should reflect the actual wages and fringe benefits paid to construction workers in the county where the work takes place,” said Wage and Hour Division’s Midwest Regional Administrator Michael Lazzeri. “The U.S. Department of Labor needs the full participation of the Indiana construction industry community to set prevailing wage rates. Full participation by contractors and interested parties will allow us to provide accurate prevailing wages and to create a complete wage determination which, in turn, reduces the need for contractors to request additional classifications.”
Notification letters and data collection forms (WD-10s) are being sent to interested parties and contractors known to the Wage and Hour Division. Data must be postmarked by May 31, 2019, to be included. To complete the survey electronically, visit www.dol.gov/whd/programs/dbra/wd10/index.htm.
You do not need a letter to answer the survey. If you would like to participate, or have questions regarding the survey process and forms, contact Alecia Upshaw at 312-596-7208.
