Training on Labor Standards Requirements for federally funded construction and federal service contracts set for September 2020
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) announced today that it will offer virtual compliance assistance seminars for contracting agencies, contractors, unions, workers, and other stakeholders to provide information about the legal requirements to pay prevailing wages on federally funded construction and service contracts.
The training is the latest in WHD’s ongoing efforts to increase awareness and improve compliance with federal prevailing wage requirements among employers performing work on federally funded construction or services contracts. The seminars will include video training on a variety of Davis-Bacon Act and Service Contract Act topics that will be provided to participants after registration for self-paced study before live, interactive question and answer sessions. WHD experts will field questions during these live sessions, and lead discussions about topics participants raise.
