U.S. DOL Conducting Wage Survey of Connecticut Construction Projects
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division is conducting a building construction wage survey in Connecticut to collect data on wages paid to workers to help establish prevailing wage rates, as required under the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts.
The survey includes wages paid on all building construction projects between April 1, 2015, and March 31, 2016, and is not limited to federally funded construction projects.
“Davis-Bacon prevailing wage rates should reflect the actual wages and fringe benefits paid to construction workers in the locations where the work takes place,” says Mark Watson, the division’s regional administrator for the Northeast.
“This can only happen with full participation by the construction industry community in the state of Connecticut. Participation by contractors and interested parties is crucial.
“Low response can lead to wage rates that do not reflect wages and incomplete wage determinations, which leads to an increase in requests for additional classifications.”
Wage Survey Reporting Procedures, Deadlines
Notification letters and data collection forms, known as WD-10s, are being sent to interested parties and contractors known to the division.
Data must be postmarked by Jan. 31, 2017, to be included, or contractors can complete the survey electronically.
You do not need a notification letter to answer the wage survey.
If you would like to participate, or have questions regarding the survey process or completing the WD-10 form, contact William E. Schweizer at 267.687.4031.
