The DOL has also returned its focus on performing broad investigative practices and efforts to identify violators.

Session 1, on April 7th, is perfect if you are a new staff person responsible for federal contract or subcontract compliance or you've been in your role for a while and need a refresher course. The presentation will provide you with a basic overview to help understand the requirements of the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts in a contractor-friendly manner.

Session 2, on April 14th, will perform a deep and comprehensive dive into the intricacies and unique challenges of the laws. This presentation will provide attendees with an advanced understanding of the requirements of the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts, such as interpreting wage determinations, handling multiple wage determinations based on type or project or location, determining correct job classification, what to do if a classification is missing, advanced fringe benefit issues, dealing with apprentices, and handling jurisdictional disputes.

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 losing money on contracts due to failure to understand labor costs, to high-dollar back pay and related 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.
