WHD to Host 2022 Compliance Seminars Concerning the Contractor Minimum Wage Increase
The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) has announced that they will be hosting compliance seminars to provide information on Executive Order 14026, “Increasing the Minimum Wage for Federal Contractors.” The seminars will include video training on the Executive Order’s requirements that participants may view at their convenience, followed by an interactive webinar with a live Q&A session offered on the alternate dates of January 26 and 27, 2022.
The compliance seminars are intended for contracting agencies, contractors, unions, workers, and other stakeholders to help increase awareness of federal prevailing wage requirements on federally funded construction or services contracts.
The Minimum Wage Executive Order applies across the U.S. and increases the hourly minimum wage for workers performing work on or in connection with covered federal contracts to $15 beginning January 30, 2022.
The seminar attendance is free; however, registration is required. Additional information, including the links to video training and virtual Q&A session dates, will be provided to registrants.
