US Department of Labor to offer prevailing wage compliance seminars online for federal contractors, contracting agencies, unions, workers
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Labor will offer online compliance seminars for contracting agencies, contractors, unions, workers and other stakeholders to provide information on the requirements governing payment of prevailing wages on federally funded construction and service contracts.
Offered by the department’s Wage and Hour Division, the seminars are part of the division’s ongoing effort to increase awareness and improve compliance with federal prevailing wage requirements.
The seminars will include on-demand video training on many Davis-Bacon and Related Acts and McNamara-O’Hara Service Contract Act topics. In addition, online Question & Answer sessions on DBRA and SCA compliance will be offered live in June and September.
Davis-Bacon Act compliance Q&As are scheduled on June 14 and Sept. 13, and Service Contract Act compliance Q&As are scheduled on June 15 and Sept. 14, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. EDT.
“As the Biden-Harris administration continues to make unprecedented investments in the nation’s infrastructure, the Wage and Hour Division wants to ensure employers on federally funded projects comply with all regulations,” said Acting Wage and Hour Division Administrator Jessica Looman. “Our online compliance seminars offer excellent opportunities for contractors, workers and contracting agencies to avoid compliance issues, and help us ensure that good jobs are being created with the extensive improvements of our nation’s infrastructure.”
While seminar attendance is free, registration is required. Register to attend the Prevailing Wage seminar.
