WHD to Hold Compliance Seminar on Applicability of Davis-Bacon to Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Construction Projects

The Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) announced it will offer compliance seminars for contractors, contracting agencies, unions, workers and other stakeholders to provide information on Davis-Bacon compliance requirements for projects receiving funding under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

SWACCA worked to ensure the construction projects funded or assisted through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law would be subject to Davis-Bacon prevailing wage labor standards, and construction workers on these projects must be paid at least the locally prevailing wage and fringe benefits required for the work they perform. This seminar provides an overview of how federal funding agencies, funding recipients, and contractors can meet their Davis-Bacon obligations on projects receiving BIL funding subject to the Davis-Bacon labor standards.

The seminar will be held on February 28, 2022 and March 1, 2022 at 1:30pm each day. Pre-registration is required and may be completed on Eventbrite here. Once registered, participants will receive additional information, including the links to video trainings and virtual Q&A session dates.
