PCHA to Host Davis-Bacon Workshop for Contractors

Please join us as we demystify the Davis-Bacon Wage requirements at our workshop for Contractors on Thursday, May 12, 2016.

The workshop will begin at 3:00 pm at PCHA’s Central Office,

located at 11479 Ulmerton Road, Largo, FL  33778.


We will discuss the basic elements of Davis-Bacon wage requirements and enforcement.

Workshop participants will learn:

  • The basic requirements of the Davis-Bacon law
  • How to complete certified payrolls
  • How to ensure that your workers are classified properly and avoid costly mistakes
  • Requirements of the employee interview process


The Davis-Bacon Act, as amended, requires that each contract over $2,000 to which the United States is a party for the construction, alteration, or repair of public buildings or public works shall contain a clause setting forth the minimum wages to be paid to various classes of laborers and mechanics employed under the contract. Under the provisions of the Act, contractors or their subcontractors are to pay workers employed directly upon the site of the work no less than the locally prevailing wages and fringe benefits paid on projects of a similar character. The Davis-Bacon Act directs the Secretary of Labor to determine such local prevailing wage rates.


There is no cost for the workshop and all contractors are encouraged to attend.

To RSVP please email or call (727) 443-7684, ext. 3030.
