Construction Companies: Prevailing Wage & Certified Payroll Reporting Problems
Construction companies are finding it more difficult to manage crews and individual employees’ time on jobs and contracts while staying in compliance with prevailing wages, fringe rate, and union requirements. Some of the common challenges facing construction companies include:
Time Collection and Tracking
Construction companies need to ensure that their employees’ hours and earnings are accurately captured and applied to the respective jobs, contracts, etc. Time Bank takes time-and-attendance data and applies the various rules to ensure time collection and tracking are done accurately every time.
Prevailing Wage Compliance
Construction companies that work on government-funded projects are required to ensure they are in compliance with prevailing wage and other employee benefits under the Davis-Bacon Act. These rates are project-specific and based on where the job is located (e.g., a drywaller in New York City is paid a different rate than a drywaller in Albany, NY). Time Bank determines the appropriate prevailing wage and corresponding fringe rates based on the specific project rates. It also ensures that employees get an FLSA-compliant overtime rate.
Certified Payroll Reporting
Many construction companies work on government projects, requiring them to submit certified payroll reports each pay period verifying they paid their employees compliant rates for work performed. For client’s using ADP Workforce Now payroll, Time Bank assigns day-of-week and other logic for certified payroll reports. The hosted solution reads payroll results and automates the creation of Federal, state, and local reports.
