Big Benefit of Working on Government Construction Projects

The Davis-Bacon Act applies to every federal government contract with a contract price of $2,000 or more for the construction, alteration, or repair of public buildings or public works. Many federal laws which empower federal assistance for construction through loans, loan guarantees, grants, and insurance are Davis-Bacon related Acts.

Related Acts include arrangements requiring that Davis-Bacon labor standards apply to most federally assisted construction.

Basic Provisions/Requirements

Contractors and subcontractors must pay laborers and mechanics employed directly upon the site of the work at least the locally prevailing wages, including fringe benefits listed in the Davis-Bacon wage determination found in the contract, for the work performed and is a combination of the basic hourly rate and any fringe benefits listed in a Davis-Bacon wage determination. Davis-Bacon labor standards clauses must be included in covered contracts.

The contractor’s obligation to pay at least the prevailing wage listed in the contract wage determination can be met by paying each laborer and mechanic the applicable prevailing wage entirely as cash wages or by a combination of cash wages and employer-provided bona fide fringe benefits. Prevailing wages, including fringe benefits, must be paid on all hours worked on the site of the work.

Apprentices or trainees may be employed at less than the rates listed in the contract determination only when they are in an apprenticeship program registered with the Department of Labor or with a state apprenticeship agency recognized by the Department.

Contractors and subcontractors are required to pay covered workers weekly and submit weekly certified payroll records to the contracting agency.

Note: Construction Management positions such as Site Safety and Health Officers (SSHO), Construction Quality Control Managers (CQC Managers), Superintendents, and administrators such as Project or Construction Managers do not fall under the Davis-Bacon Act.
