General:

  1. Reports shall be submitted to the Department of Labor by each Division Administrator. The report is due on or before April 30 and October 30 of each year.
  2. Violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act shall not be included in the reports.

Comments on Report Items :

  1. Enter the beginning and ending dates (either October 1 through March 31 or April 1 through September 30) of the period covered by each semi-annual report.
  2. Enter the total number of contracts awarded by FHWA and/or the State departments of transportation which are subject to the Davis Bacon and Related Acts and the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act.
  3. Enter the total dollar amount of the contracts from item 2.
  4. Enter the total number of contractors/subcontractors against whom complaints were received.
  5. Enter the total number of full scale investigations completed. A full scale investigation is a complete and detailed investigation into the administration of labor standards provisions. Do not include routine payroll checks. However, a full scale investigation may be one limited to some portion of a contractor's/subcontractor's operation such as a single paving operation.
  6. Enter the number of contractors/subcontractors found to be in violation as a result of the investigations reported in item 5. Do not count a contractor/subcontractor more than once in a single investigation because he/she has violated more than one act or because more than one contract is included in the investigation.
  7. Enter the total dollar amount of wages found to be due employees of the contractors/subcontractors reported in item 6. Separate the dollar amounts according to (a) violations of the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts and (b) violations of the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act.
  8. Enter the total dollar amounts of back wages paid to employees of the contractor/subcontractor reported in item 6. Separate the dollar amount according to (a) violations of the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts and (b) violations of the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act.
  9. Enter the number of employees to whom the wages were paid in item 8. This figure is the unduplicated count, i.e., an employee paid wages as a result of an investigation shall be counted only once regardless of the fact that he/she may have been paid under both Davis-Bacon and Related Acts and the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act.
  10. Enter the total dollar amount of liquidated damages assessed as a result of violations of the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act.
  11. Enter any explanation or comment considered necessary to a proper understanding of the report. A separate sheet may be attached if necessary.
