US Department of Labor seeks input from Nevada highway construction employers to establish accurate prevailing wage rates
LAS VEGAS – The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division is asking businesses in Nevada’s highway construction industries to complete a survey to help the division establish prevailing wage rates, as required by the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts. Not limited to federally funded construction projects, the survey includes active highway construction projects in Nevada between Aug. 1, 2020 and July 31, 2021.
The DBRA directs the department to set prevailing wage rates that reflect actual wages and fringe benefits paid to construction workers in the county where the work takes place. Full participation by contractors and interested parties allows the department to establish accurate prevailing wages and create complete wage determinations. Accurate wages and complete determinations reduce the need for contractors to request additional classifications.
The division will send notification letters and data collection forms (WD-10s) to interested parties and contractors known to the agency. Data must be postmarked by Aug. 31, 2022, to be included. You can also complete the survey online. You do not need to receive a letter to participate in the survey.
The division will host briefings to provide information on the survey process as well as instructions for completing data collection forms (WD-10s). These events will be held online April 26, 2022 and April 27, 2022. There is no cost to attend. Find additional information and register online.
If you would like to participate, or have questions regarding the survey process and forms, contact Luis Cabuhat at (415) 241-3538 or Rose Huynh at (415) 241-3539.
