In 2023, the Department of Labor (DOL) implemented the most extensive overhaul of the Davis-Bacon Act (DBA) in over 40 years. This update will significantly impact construction contractors who employ laborers and mechanics. The changes introduced by the DOL will affect the determination of prevailing wage rates and the handling of misclassifications and work site expansion, among other things.

With federal funding flowing into infrastructure, semiconductor plants, and clean energy projects, construction contractors have more opportunities than ever. However, to bid for and maintain government contracts, compliance with the revamped DBA rule is crucial.

Join us for an informative course, where government contracting attorneys Sarah Nash and Nichole Atallah (PilieroMazza) will examine the most crucial changes in the DBA rule, their impact on commercial companies, and the common compliance issues you should be aware of. 

Target Audience: Professionals in federal construction contracting

    I have been dealing with D-B issues for over 40 years. Simple plain explanations were provided and it certainly covered the changes well. Great job, ladies!
