The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has announced that the minimum wage for workers performing work on or in connection with certain federal contracts will rise to $10.35 per hour ($7.25 per hour for covered tipped employees) beginning January 1, 2018.

Background

  • Procurement contracts for construction covered by the Davis-Bacon Act (DBA);
  • Service contracts covered by the Service Contract Act (SCA);
  • Concessions contracts, including any concessions contract excluded from the SCA by DOL regulations; and
  • Contracts in connection with federal property or lands and related to offering services for federal employees, their dependents, or the general public.
