WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Labor will offer online compliance seminars for contracting agencies, contractors, unions, workers and other stakeholders to provide information on the requirements governing payment of prevailing wages on federally funded construction and service contracts.

Offered by the department’s Wage and Hour Division, the seminars are part of the division’s ongoing effort to increase awareness and improve compliance with federal prevailing wage requirements.

The seminars will include video training on many Davis-Bacon and Related Acts and McNamara-O’Hara Service Contract Act topics that participants can view on demand. In addition to viewing the recorded videos on specific DBA and SCA topics, online Question & Answer sessions on DBA and SCA compliance will be offered live in March, June and September from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. EDT.

Davis-Bacon Act compliance Q&A’s are scheduled for March 29, June 14 and Sept. 13.

Service Contract Act compliance Q&A’s are scheduled for March 30, June 15 and Sept. 14.

“As the Biden-Harris administration makes unprecedented investments in the nation’s infrastructure, ensuring that employers comply with the Davis-Bacon and Service Contract acts and other laws we enforce to protect workers is critical to creating good jobs and supporting responsible employers,” said Acting Wage and Hour Division Administrator Jessica Looman. “These seminars offer excellent opportunities for contractors, workers  and contracting agencies to understand the laws that govern wages and benefits on federal contracts better.”  

While seminar attendance is free, registration is required. Register to attend the Prevailing Wage seminar.

Additional information – including links to video trainings and dates for upcoming Q&A sessions, will be provided to registrants soon.
