The Hearing Process

  1. Refusal-to-pay cases are resolved pursuant to 29 C.F.R. § 5.11.
    1. If factual issues are in dispute, WHD notifies the contractors (both prime and sub) in writing of the investigation finding and offers the opportunity to request a hearing before an administrative law judge.
    2. If only issues of law are in dispute, WHD offers the contractors the opportunity to appeal a WHD ruling before the Department's ARB.
  2. In both agreement-to-pay and refusal-to-pay cases where the debarment criteria are met, the contractors are offered a hearing before an ALJ pursuant to 29 C.F.R. § 5.12 on the issue of debarment.
  3. ALJ decisions may be appealed to the ARB under 29 C.F.R. Part 7.
  4. The ARB hears all appeals of ALJ cases. The ARB, which acts on behalf of the Secretary of Labor, consists of members appointed by the Secretary. The ARB also acts on petitions for review of rulings issued by the WHD Administrator on coverage, interpretations, and wage determination matters.
