Prevailing-Wage Overhaul Proposal Set For Official Publication

March 17, 2022, 1:24 PM

A U.S. Labor Department proposal (RIN: 1235-AA40) that would alter how the agency enforces and calculates prevailing wages under the Davis-Bacon Act will be officially published Friday in the Federal Register.

The proposal announced earlier this month would change how the agency enforces the 1931 law that requires workers to receive “prevailing wages,” or pay and benefits equal to local rates for similar jobs, when working on projects funded by the federal government.

The public will have 60 days to comment after the rulemaking’s March 18 publication.
