Advance Copy Release of New DOL Final Rule on Prevailing Wage

An advance copy was made available of a new DOL final rule that adopts, with changes, the interim final rule published on October 8, 2020, making changes to the computation of prevailing wage levels. The final rule is currently pending placement on public inspection and publication in the Federal Register and is expected to take effect 60 days from the date of publication. The effective date of the rule will likely be further extended as President-Elect Biden’s transition team has indicated that his administration will issue a memorandum on January 20 delaying implementation of “midnight regulations” (i.e., regulations issued since the election but not yet effective) for 60 days. Groups that previously challenged this regulation are also expected to continue to litigate the revised final rule.
