Davis-Bacon Training Series: Understanding, Influencing, and Complying with Federal Prevailing Wage Requirements
The application of the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts to federal and federally assisted construction projects leaves many contractors uncertain about the requirements of federal prevailing wage laws and the consequences of non-compliance. Failure to comply puts covered contractors at risk of catastrophic consequences, from high-dollar penalties to debarment from future federal work. This two-part webinar series seeks to help such contractors avoid those risks by educating staff tasked with DBRA compliance and administration on coverage, requirements, pitfalls, and enforcement of these laws. It will also help you understand your rights to influence and challenge the wage-and-benefits requirements that affect your firm.
RECOMMENDED FOR FEDERAL PRIME AND SUBCONTRACTORS!
Session 2 (advanced) will cover how to read and interpret a wage determination and discuss the steps that are taken when trade jurisdictions are unclear or in dispute. Contractors who perform work on a Davis-Bacon covered projects are expected to be aware of local area practice; not understanding local area practice can lead to misclassifications of workers and typically result in back wage findings, and, in some cases debarment.
