Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
Van Allyn Goodwin, Senior Shareholder of Littler Mendelson, P.C. (San Diego office) will explain the specific requirements of the Davis-Bacon Act, when it applies, and the process necessary to ensure compliance and avoid enforcement actions and potential penalties.
Alleged violations of wage and hour laws have become a major source for the new wave of employment class actions, which often result in hundreds of thousands of dollars, and in many cases millions of dollars, of recoverable damages and attorneys’ fees awarded to the successful litigants and their attorneys – in addition to the substantial amount of legal fees and administrative costs incurred by employers in defending these actions. The U.S. Department of Labor has become increasingly vigilant in their investigation and enforcement of federal wage and hour laws. Recently enacted federal legislation, Executive Orders issued by the Obama Administration involving the use of federal stimulus monies and loan guarantees by various federal agencies impose prevailing wage and employment law compliance requirements that will result in increased enforcement by the federal government.
Failure to comply with the Davis-Bacon Act can have dire consequences, including debarment and the loss of a major source of business, in addition to the exposure to substantial damages and attorneys’ fees. This 90 minute webinar will enable you to ensure you are satisfying the Davis-Bacon Act when competing for and performing federal public works contracts.
The 90-minute webinar, entitled “Understanding Davis-Bacon and Prevailing Wage Law on Government Contracts" is scheduled for Thursday, November 08, at 1:00 PM Eastern.
