Updated Prevailing Wage Resource Book Available from USDOL Wage & Hour

The U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division (WHD) has released an updated Prevailing Wage Resource Book (PWRB). The PWRB provides information on labor standards (including the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts, Service Contract Act and more) for government contractors, contracting agencies, enforcement staff, unions, associations and workers. The updated PWRB discusses WHD’s policies in simpler language and provides additional guidance and examples based on stakeholder feedback. For more information on labor standards for certain federally funded contracts, see the Government Contracts Compliance Assistance webpage.
