AGC Lunch & Learn Wage Determinations Overview

Contractors performing service and/or construction contracts for the federal government must comply with a set of labor standards dictated by statute and regulations. Principal among these is the requirement to pay employees the certain minimum prevailing wages and fringe benefits dictated by DOL wage determinations or collective bargaining agreements. Construction contracts for the State of Alaska are subject minimum prevailing wages under the state DOL office often referred to as “Little Davis Bacon” or “Baby Bacon.” The State DOL intent is similar to federal mandates, however; compliance report processes differ from federal requirement.
