Prevailing wage laws are regulations about the wages specific workers on public works projects must earn in overtime, hourly wages and benefits. These rules vary by specific counties and states. Compliance with these regulations affects the success of a project, but unfortunately, labor laws regarding prevailing wages are notoriously complex. They also change regularly, making compliance even more challenging.
Lorman Education Services offers prevailing wage training to allow you to learn about the statues and guidelines you need to ensure compliance with these regulations. You'll learn how to understand fringe benefit requirements, apprenticeship standards and how to determine where wage laws apply. You will learn how to calculate and determine current prevailing wages, even in situations where there are on-site and off-site workers or where workers cross regional and state lines. If you ever find yourself involved in enforcement proceedings, prevailing wage training can also help you understand how to properly address enforcement by employees, third parties, attorneys or government agencies.
