US Department of Labor asks Kansas heavy construction industries to submit data to help establish accurate prevailing wage rates
WICHITA, KS- The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division asks businesses in Kansas’ heavy construction industries to complete surveys to help the agency establish accurate prevailing wage rates, as required under the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts. Not limited to federally funded construction projects, the survey includes active heavy construction projects that took place in any of Kansas’ metropolitan counties between Jan. 1, 2020 and Dec. 31, 2020.
“The Davis-Bacon and Related Acts directs the U.S. Department of Labor to set prevailing wage rates that reflect the actual wages and fringe benefits paid to construction workers in the county where the work takes place,” said Wage and Hour District Director Reed Trone in Kansas City, Kansas. “The more contractors and interested parties who participate, the more precise the department can be when it establishes prevailing wages and complete wage determinations.”
The division will send notification letters and WD-10 data collection forms to contractors and interested parties known to the agency. To be included, postmark all forms by Oct. 22, 2021 or complete the survey online.
If you would like to participate or have questions regarding the survey process and forms, contact Janetlee Kernats at 312-596-7214 or Kernats.Janetlee@dol.gov.
