The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently announced the launch of an enhanced electronic version of its Handy Reference Guide to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). This new online version of one of the Wage and Hour Division’s (WHD) most popular publications is intended to assist American employers and workers with a simple, easy-to-follow resource that provides basic WHD information, as well as links to other resources.

New Deadline to Submit EEO-1 Data Extended Until May 31, 2019

AGC of America submitted comments supporting the National Labor Relations Board’s proposed rule on joint-employer status with certain clarifications January 28.  The rule would reinstate a standard establishing joint-employer status under the National Labor Relations Act only when a company actually exercises substantial direct and immediate control over essential terms and conditions of employment of another company’s employees and does so in a manner that is not limited and routine.  It would reverse the AGC-opposed Browning-Ferris Industries decision that was issued by the Obama Board in 2015 and recently upheld by a federal circuit court.

According to the latest Contractor Compensation Quarterly (CCQ)  published by PAS, Inc., construction support staff wages are to rise by an average 3.4% by 2018 year end and pay increases have been fairly consistent the past few years. The prediction is based on data gathered from over 165 companies in the 15th edition of PAS’s Construction Support Staff Salary Survey. Though the projected 2018 increase is 3.4% for administrative and technical support, it is pointed out that historically support staff predictions are low, so year-end 2018 might look similar to 2017 and come in with a 3.5% increase.

On December 27, 2018, in IBEW Local 357 (Desert Sun Enterprises), the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued a decision reaffirming its longstanding rule that, when a union notifies a neutral employer of its intent to picket a primary employer (the employer with which it has a direct dispute) at a site where both employers are operating, the union must include assurances that it that the picketing will conform to the NLRB’s Moore Dry Dock standards.  The decision is consistent with an amicus brief filed by AGC and is important for contractors and owners.

The National Labor Relations Board’s current joint employer standard has received a mixed review from a federal circuit court. The decision is disappointing to AGC, which sought reversal of the standard in an amicus brief in the case, but it provides some valuable guidance on how courts may evaluate the Board’s ongoing rulemaking efforts.
