Prevailing Wage Law: An Understanding of the Davis-Bacon Act

Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar

Many organizations are ill-informed regarding the requirements for complying - and the consequences of non-compliance - with the Davis-Bacon Act when bidding on and performing federal public works contracts.

The U.S. Department of Labor has become increasingly vigilant in their investigation and enforcement of federal wage and hour laws, with violations often resulting in millions of dollars of damages and attorneys' fees awarded to the successful litigants and their attorneys.


Learn about recently-enacted federal legislation, Executive Orders issued by the Obama Administration involving the use of federal stimulus monies, and loan guarantees by various federal agencies impose prevailing wage and employment law compliance requirements that will result in increased enforcement by the federal government.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
