AGC Two-Part Webinar Series to Cover Davis-Bacon Pitfalls and Hot Topics

AGC of America will provide its latest training on federal prevailing wage laws in a two-part webinar on Dec. 11 and 13, 2012, from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. ET.  The format is different from previous years, offering new information for everyone involved in compliance with the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts (DBRA) on federal and federally assisted construction projects.  The first session will address the Top 10 (or so) Pitfalls in Contractor Compliance.  Leading attorney and prevailing wage consultant Deborah Wilder will talk from her experience as president of Contractor Compliance & Monitoring, Inc. about the common problems plaguing construction contractors in compliance with the DBRA and how to avoid them.  She’ll cover such issues as ensuring compliance with flow-down requirements, how to make the conformance process work for you, the right way to complete certified payroll records, dealing with off-site operations, the treatment of truck drivers, and ascertaining the proper classification of your employees. In the second session, Ask the Experts, a panel of authorities will briefly talk about the latest developments and hottest topics in federal prevailing wage law for construction and then devote the remainder of the session to answering audience questions.  Don’t miss this chance to go beyond the basics and ask the probing questions you have about DBRA.  Speakers will include Wilder along with Tim Helm, chief of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Branch of Government Contracts Enforcement, and Natalie Boan, chief of the Department’s Branch of Construction Wage Determinations.  Ezequiel Arvizu, PHR, HCS, of Sundt Construction will moderate both sessions. The registration fee for the two-part event is $149 for AGC members or $189 for nonmembers.  Purchase with the just-released 4th edition of AGC’s Davis-Bacon Compliance Manual and receive a discount!  The cost for both the webinar and the manual is just $199 for AGC members or $239 for nonmembers.
