KANSAS CITY, KS – The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division routinely collects data to help the division establish accurate prevailing wage rates and fringe benefits, required by the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts. The division is currently surveying active heavy construction projects from Jan. 1, 2020 to Dec. 31, 2020 in any of Kansas’ metropolitan counties.

 “The Davis-Bacon and Related Acts directs the U.S. Department of Labor to set prevailing wage rates that reflect the actual wages and fringe benefits paid to construction workers in the county where the work takes place,” said Wage and Hour District Director Reed Trone in Kansas City, Kansas. “The greater the participation, the more exact the department can be in establishing prevailing wages and completing wage determinations.”

The division is currently collecting data electronically and via data collection forms (WD-10s). Submissions postmarked or submitted online by Oct. 22, 2021 will be included. Learn more about the Kansas heavy construction survey.
