Last week the U.S. Department of Labor released its annual memorandum noting a rate increase for Service Contract Act (SCA) Health and Welfare Fringe Benefits.The new rate is $3.50 per hour (up from $3.35 per hour last year) and a special rate of $1.42 for Hawaii, up from $1.40 per hour last year. This rate increase takes effect June 22, 2010. SCA benefit change notices are not sent directly to contractors or subcontractors, so we wanted to make sure our SCA contractor clients were aware of this rate increase. A copy of the memorandum can be viewed here.
Solicitations and Contracts which are affected include:
