The Pinellas County Housing Authority will hold a workshop for contractors on Thursday, April 12, 2012 regarding contractor compliance with the Davis-Bacon wage law. The workshop will begin at 3:00 pm and will cover the basic elements of Davis-Bacon wage requirements and enforcement.
Workshop participants will learn:
¨ How to complete certified payrolls
¨ How to ensure that your workers are classified properly and avoid costly mistakes

The Davis-Bacon Act, as amended, requires that each contract over $2,000 to which the United States is a party for the construction, alteration, or repair of public buildings or public works shall contain a clause setting forth the minimum wages to be paid to various classes of laborers and mechanics employed under the contract. Under the provisions of the Act, contractors or their subcontractors are to pay workers employed directly upon the site of the work no less than the locally prevailing wages and fringe benefits paid on projects of a similar character. The Davis-Bacon Act directs the Secretary of Labor to determine such local prevailing wage rates.
All contractors are encouraged to attend. To RSVP please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 727-443-7684, ext. 3030.
