Foremen, Technical and Supervisory Employees

An individual employed in a bona fide executive, administrative or professional capacity, as defined in Regulations, 29 C.F.R. Part 541, is not a "laborer" or "mechanic" as these terms are defined under the Davis-Bacon Act.

  1. However, if a supervisory employee who is not exempt from coverage under that regulation spends more than an incidental amount of work as a laborer or mechanic, the hours spent in these activities would be subject to the Davis-Bacon labor standards.
  2. For example, if a working foreman spends more than 20 percent of the time during a workweek performing laborer or mechanic duties at the job site, the hours spent in these activities should be paid at least the hourly rate specified in the contract wage determination for the appropriate laborer or mechanic classification(s).
