The U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division (WHD) and Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) have implemented a series of regional compliance seminars in various cities throughout the country. Each seminar will be offered free of charge to employers.
In an All-Agency Memorandum issued on May 29, 2009, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Employment Standards Administration's Wage and Hour Division (WHD) has provided guidance to contracting agencies on the applicability of Davis-Bacon labor standards to federal and federally-assisted construction work funded in whole or in part under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). The memorandum provides a summary of the prevailing wage labor standards applicable to construction projects funded under Division A of the ARRA, highlights federal agencies' responsibilities in implementing Davis-Bacon labor standards, and provides links to online resources for additional information.
