Littler’s Friday Webinar Series

Session Title: COVID-19 in the Workplace: Recent Developments and Compliance Challenges
Speakers: Bruce J. Sarchet, Littler Mendelson P.C.; Kayla K. Cox, Littler Mendelson P.C.;


Webinar Description
*Hosted by Littler Mendelson P.C.* Login information will be provided to the participants the day before the webinar.

It has become apparent that COVID-19 is going to dominate employment and labor law issues for the foreseeable future. On Friday, April 3, Littler's Sacramento office presented a webinar on dealing with COVID-19 in the workplace. More than 500 attendees generated over 100 questions, and we were unable to answer all of them in the allotted time. Plus, the laws relating to the pandemic are changing virtually every day.


Therefore, to address evolving labor and employment law challenges, Littler has decided to host COVID-19 webinars on the first Friday of each month. The series is designed so that business leaders, human resources professionals and in-house counsel can stay current with the best thinking that Littler has to offer during the crisis.


Each session will begin with a 30-minute update on recent legal developments, including practical suggestions and strategic thinking for responding to new COVID-19 challenges, followed by a 30-minute to an “open microphone" session to answer your questions.

DOL Inspector General Releases Report on Davis-Bacon Wage Audit

On March 29, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Inspector General released an audit examining the DOL’s Wage and House Divisions survey process for collecting and determining the prevailing wage rate in four types of construction projects. According to the report, the OIG found that, as of September 2018, 3% of WHD’s 134,738 unique published rates, roughly 4,400, had not been updated in 21 to 40 years. Additionally, of seven sampled surveys that analyzed 124 wage rates, the OIG found 48% of the rates were not determined from data about a single construction worker within the 31 counties that the published rates represented. Finally, the report found union wages prevailed for 48% of the wage determinations, despite the fact that just 12.8% of the U.S. private construction workforce is unionized.

The Heritage Foundation: Labor Department Can Create Jobs by Calculating Davis–Bacon Rates More Accurately

According to a report issued by the Heritage Foundation, the United States Department of Labor   uses unscientific and flawed methods to estimate the Davis-Bacon Act prevailing wage rates. The report found, amongst other findings, that current surveys do not use statistically representative samples have tiny sample sizes and combine data from economically unrelated counties or set local wages using statewide data. Furthermore, nearly half of the surveys are over a decade old and don’t account for economic changes over the last ten year. The report concludes by suggesting the DOL should switch to Bureau of Labor Statistics data to get a more accurate reading of wage data.
