71) What Davis-Bacon Act notice or poster must be displayed on Federal-aid funded construction projects?

Covered contractors and subcontractors are required to display the “Rights Under the Davis-Bacon Act” notice (WH-1321) on the job site in a prominent and accessible place where it can be easily seen by the workers. The applicable wage determination must be similarly posted.

WH-1321, “Employees Rights Under the Davis-Bacon Act”
WH-1321sp, “Derechos Del Empleado Bajo La Ley Davis-Bacon”

72) Where can contractors and subcontractors obtain the workplace notices or posters required for Federal-aid funded construction projects?

The notices or posters required on Federal-aid funded constructions projects are available at no cost in electronic and printed form from the Department of Labor. For assistance in complying with federal workplace notices or posters requirements, see:

Where can I find workplace posters?
Job Site Posters

73) Where should contractors and subcontractors display workplace notices or posters required on Federal-aid funded construction projects?

Workplace notices or posters must be displayed at all times by the contractor and subcontractors at the site of the work in a prominent and accessible place where they can be easily seen by the workers.

Where should I post the required federal posters?
29 CFR 5.5(a)(1)(i)

74) What is FHWA’s position for displaying notices or posters on short-term projects when there is not a job office location?

When a job office is not established due to the nature of the work and/or the length of the contract, the contractor and subcontractors must display all notices or posters at their home offices where hiring is conducted and each employee must be provided copies of all the notices or posters and sign a statement acknowledging they received and understood the content of all the notices or posters.

75) Can the required workplace notices or posters be placed in a binder that is accessible in a supervisor’s or foremen’s vehicle when a job office has not been established for a covered Federal-aid construction project?

NO. Placing the required workplace posters in a binder does not meet the requirement for displaying or posting in a conspicuous place where they are easily visible to all employees — the intended audience.

Can I put the required posters in a binder that I put on the wall?
