The purpose of the Labor Compliance Section is to ensure contract compliance with federal labor regulations, specifically, the Davis Bacon & Related Acts. The primary responsibility is to enforce these regulations on federally assisted capital improvement projects. The team uses a variety of methods including site investigations, conducting employee interviews, auditing contractor payroll and business records, and withholding payments to the contractor, when necessary, to ensure employees are paid the prevailing wage for work performed. The staff is comprised of one Labor Compliance Supervisor and three Labor Compliance Specialists.
