Federal Free Printable Miscellaneous Law Posters Federal Working on Government Contracts Poster

The Working on Government Contracts is a miscellaneous law poster by the Federal Department Of Labor. This poster is mandatory for some employers, including employers who are contractors/subcontractors engaged in contracts of excess of $2,500 that are engaged in a contract with the united states or the district of columbia to furnish services in the u.s. through the use of service employees.

This poster must be posted in a conspicuous place for employers of those who are contracted by the Government. This poster describes the minimum wage for those under contracts, requirements for fringe benefits, how overtime pay is calculated, how old you must be to be able to do government contracts, and how to file complaints should this law be violated. This poster also describes what the Walsh-Healey Public Contracts Act is and what the Service Contract Act is.

WAGE AND HOUR DIVISION
UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF LABOR

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
The purpose of the discussion below is to advise contractors which are subject to the Walsh-Healey Public Contracts Act or the Service Contract Act of 
the principal provisions of these acts.
WALSH-HEALEY PUBLIC CONTRACTS ACT
General Provisions—This act applies to contracts which exceed or may exceed $10,000 entered into by any agency or 
instrumentality of the United States for the manufacture or furnishing of materials, supplies, articles, or equipment. The act 
establishes minimum wage, maximum hours, and safety and health standards for work on such contracts, and prohibits the 
employment on contract work of convict labor (unless certain conditions\
 are met) and children under 16 years of age. The 
employment of homeworkers (except homeworkers with disabilities employe\
d under the provisions of Regulations, 29 CFR Part 
525) on a covered contract is not permitted.
In addition to its coverage of prime contractors, the act under certain \
circumstances applies to secondary contractors 
performing work under contracts awarded by the Government prime contractor.
All provisions of the act except the safety and health requirements are administered by the Wage and Hour Division.
Minimum Wage—Covered employees must currently be paid not less than the Federal minimum wage established in sect\
ion 
6(a)(1) of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Overtime—Covered workers must be paid at least one and one-half times their basic rate\
 of pay for all hours worked in excess 
of 40 a week. Overtime is due on the basis of the total hours spent in a\
ll work, Government and non-Government, performed by 
the employee in any week in which covered work is performed.
Child Labor—Employers may protect themselves against unintentional child labor violations by obtaini\
ng certificates of age. 
State employment or age certificates are acceptable.
Safety and Health—No covered work may be performed in plants, factories, buildings, or surroundings or under work 
conditions that are unsanitary or hazardous or dangerous to the health and safety of the employees engaged in the 
performance of the contract. The safety and health provisions of the Walsh-Healey Public Contracts Act are administered by 
the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
Posting—During the period that covered work is being performed on a contract subject to the act, the contrac\
tor must post 
copies of Notice to Employees Working on Government Contracts in a sufficient number of places to permit employees to 
observe a copy on the way to or from their place of employment.
Responsibility for Secondary Contractors—Prime contractors are liable for violations of the act committed by their covered 
secondary contractors.
SERVICE CONTRACT ACT
General Provisions—The Service Contract Act applies to every contract entered into by the United States or the District of 
Columbia, the principal purpose of which is to furnish services in the United States through the use of service employees. 
Contractors and subcontractors performing on such Federal contracts must\
 observe minimum wage and safety and health 
standards, and must maintain certain records, unless a specific exemption applies.
Wages and Fringe Benefits—Every service employee performing any of the Government contract work under a service 
contract in excess of $2,500 must be paid not less than the monetary wag\
es, and must be furnished the fringe benefits, which 
the Secretary of Labor has determined to be prevailing in the locality for the classification in which the employee is\
 working 
or the wage rates and fringe benefits (including any accrued or prospective wage rates and fringe benefits) contained in a 
predecessor contractor's collective bargaining agreement. The wage rates and fringe benefits required are usually specified 
in the contract but in no case may employees doing work necessary for th\
e performance of the contract be paid less than the 
minimum wage established in section 6(a)(1) of the Fair Labor Standa\
rds Act. Service contracts which do not exceed $2,500 are 
not subject to prevailing rate determinations or to the safety and health requirements of the act. However, the act does require 
that employees performing work on such contracts be paid not less than t\
he minimum wage rate established in section 6(a)(1) 
of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Overtime—The Fair Labor Standards Act and the Contract Work Hours Safety Standards Act may require the payment of 
overtime at time and one-half the regular rate of pay for all hours work on the contract in excess of 40 a \
week. The Contract 
Work Hours Safety Standards Act is more limited in scope than the Fair Labor Standards Act and generally applies to 
Government contracts in excess of $100,000 that require or involve the employment of laborers, mechanics, guards, watchmen.
Safety and Health—The act provides that no part of the services in contracts in excess of $2,500 may\
 be performed in 
buildings or surroundings or under working conditions, provided by or under the control or supervision of the contractor or 
subcontractor, which are unsanitary or hazardous or dangerous to the health or safety of service employees engaged to furnish 
the services. The safety and health provisions of the Service Contract Act are administered by the Occupational Safety and 
Health Administration.
Notice to Employees—On the date a service employee commences work on a contract in excess of\
 $2,500, the contractor 
(or subcontractor) must provide the employee with a notice of the compensation required by the act. The posting of the notice 
(including any applicable wage determination) contained on the reverse in a location where it may be seen by all employees 
performing on the contract will satisfy this requirement.
Notice in Subcontracts—The contractor is required to insert in all subcontracts the labor standards clauses specified by the 
regulations in 29 CFR Part 4 for Federal service contracts exceeding $2,5\
00.
Responsibility for Secondary Contractors—Prime contractors are liable for violations of the act committed by their covered 
secondary contractors.
Other Obligations—Observance of the labor standards of these acts does not relieve the employer of any obligation he may 
have under any other laws or agreements providing for higher labor standards.
Additional Information—Additional Information and copies of the acts and applicable regulations and interpretations may be 
obtained from the nearest office of the Wage and Hour Division or the national office in Washington, D.C. Information pertaining 
to safety and health standards may be obtained from the nearest office of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration or 
the national office in Washington, D.C.
