AGC to Offer Webinar On What's New With the Davis-Bacon Act

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the enactment of the Davis-Bacon Act. So, what has changed in 70 years? While the law itself hasn't changed much; but the administration of the law has changed significantly, causing concern for many contractors with federal and federally-assisted construction contracts.

  • Have federal prevailing wage rates in your area suddenly increased?
  • Do you know how to appropriately challenge a wage determination with success?
  • How do you handle it when your worker's job classification isn't listed on the wage determination?
  • And what about audits? Is your company prepared for a Davis-Bacon audit?
  • What are the problem areas that are showing up in current audits that your company can avoid?

Davis-Bacon wage rates are increasing and so are the Department of Labor's audit and enforcement efforts. This advanced-level, two-part webinar will explain to federal construction contractors how things are changing and how you can safeguard your company from risks arising under the Davis-Bacon Act today.

Bonus: All registrants will receive three months of on-demand access to AGC's pre-recorded webinar "The Davis-Bacon & Related Acts: The Ins and Outs of Federal Prevailing Wage Law." Whether you are new to federal contract compliance or just in need of a refresher on Davis-Bacon compliance from A to Z, this detailed two-part webinar will provide you with the knowledge you need to understand the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts requirements in a contractor-friendly manner.
