SBCA & PWCA present Prevailing Wage 2-Day Seminar!

Wednesday, July 21, 2021 8:30 AM - Thursday, July 22, 2021 4:30 PM (PDT)


We invite you to an incredible 2-day seminar hosted by the Public Works Compliance Advisors this summer!

Featuring a comprehensive prevailing wage & certified payroll training. Hosted at the Historic Carrillo Ballroom in downtown Santa Barbara. Lunch provided by a 5-star caterer.


Day 1: Designed for Owners, Project Managers Salesmen & Estimators (or “OPSE”)

Instructor: Michael McCoy, VP of Legal

We will unpack the most critical Labor Code Section 1720 details OPSE’s must know to avoid six-figure DIR fines, penalties and liquidated damages. Experience teaches that more than 85% of prevailing wage fines and penalties are as a result of OPSE’s failure to timely provide the most basic but crucial information needed by the payroll department for the timely submission of documents to the DIR. During this session, PWCA’s vice president of Legal will guide OPSE’s through all the necessary steps to prevent DIR penalties, while maximizing OPSE’s profits at the same time.

Day 2: Designed for Payroll Department, Human Resources and Office Management (or "PHRO")

Instructors: Michael McCoy, Christina Castillo, Mai Xiong-Saetern

PWCA’s compliance experts will unpack the most critical information PHRO’s must know to avoid unnecessary DIR fines, penalties and liquidated damages. You will discover the most efficient day-to-day administration and certified payroll processes, including, but not limited to,

(1) the DIR’s wage determination process from the DIR’s website

(2) the data entry process for the electronic certified payroll uploads to the DIR

(3) how to comply with all DAS-apprenticeship standards for each craft on every project

(4) how to calculate and complete fringe benefit statements for each worker, either union or DIR

(5) calculating and paying training fund contributions to the appropriate apprenticeship entities

(6) completing your in-house A-1-131 certified payroll records.

In this session, we will also cover the Skilled & Trained Workforce (STWF) mandates, including the monthly reporting process pursuant to the Public Contract Code, Sections 2600 through 2603.

Lastly, to avoid steep fines for noncompliance, your PWCA instructors will discuss the significant methods PHRO should utilize to accurately and routinely monitor sub-tier contractors’ certified payroll records.
