For those who perform services for the Government:
The applicable labor requirements - from wage rates and fringe benefits to health plans and overtime issues.
When they are applied.
How they are enforced.
Efficiently incorporating them into your contract activities.
Government contracting is tough enough without labor problems on your home ground. Even so, contractors who perform a wide range of services for the Government must comply with a sweeping range of special labor requirements. Chief among these labor requirements are those contained in the Service Contract Act provisions continually presenting contractors with a large number of difficult questions and problem areas, and ones that are being more aggressively reviewed and enforced by the Government than ever before, with increasingly severe penalties.
This special two-day program will teach you what the Service Contract Act's labor requirements are, when they are applicable, and how to efficiently incorporate them into your daily contracting activities. The special Course Curriculum has been designed to offer maximum benefits to personnel professionals, contract managers, legal counsel, project managers, and others who are involved with a contract's labor requirements. Further, the course offers practical guidance on your rights, options and remedies.
NOTE: A one day course on the Davis-Bacon Act precedes this class in the Washington, DC location. Please call for more information.
Included in the program are analyses of:
When the Act applies.
The Act's coverage; exemptions to the provisions.
Wage determination procedures; prevailing labor rate issues.
Determining prevailing fringe benefits.
