"The Davis Bacon Act is one of the most complex statutes to follow.  Organization that want to do business with the federal government must tread very carefully to safeguard compliance.” Susan Fahey Desmond

Doing business with the Federal Government and offer services on federally funded or assisted construction projects must comply with the Davis Bacon Act.  The DBA requires these corporations to pay at least the locally “prevailing wage” to labourer and mechanics employed on the contract.  But how do you determine that “persuading wage”?  The DOL is increasing its enforcement of the DBA – don’t be trapped violating the DBA – you may face paying millions of dollars of damages and attorneys’ fees!
