WHD Releases Updated Prevailing Wage Resource Book

The Department of Labor’s (DOL) Wage and Hour Division (WHD) announced updates to the Prevailing Wage Resource Book (PWRB) in light of the recent publication of its SWACCA-supported final rule, “Updating the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts Regulations.”

WHD notes that, in response to the final rule’s publication, the agency conducted a comprehensive review of the PWRB to simplify the language, restructure the format in a more intuitive manner, and provide additional guidance and examples where stakeholders routinely requested clarification. Per the WHD, the updated PWRB discusses the agency’s policies in a way that is more easily accessible to all stakeholders and provides them with a better understanding of the labor standards that apply to many federal and federally funded contracts.
