AGC Offers Sept. 6 Briefing & Other Resources on New Davis-Bacon Regulations

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently announced a massive final rule Updating the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts Regulations. The expected effective date is October 23, 2023.

AGC of America was successful in paring down some of the more controversial proposals in the 700-plus page rule. Nevertheless, the association’s preliminary analysis shows that more work will be covered under Davis Bacon than previously covered and that DOL missed a critical opportunity to improve the wage determination process.

To help members prepare for the changes, AGC has partnered with DOL officials to provide a special virtual briefing about the impact of the regulatory changes on September 6, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. EDT. During the briefing, Jessica Looman, Principal Deputy Administrator of the DOL’s Wage and Hour Division, will provide an overview of the rule and answer questions from AGC members. AGC experts will also provide an analysis of the rule. The briefing is free but advanced registration is required.

AGC has also released the following resources to assist members:

  • A one-page document providing the topline takeaways of the final rule here; and
  • A seven-page document summarizing in more detail key provisions of the final rule here.
