Seminars to Navigate Occupational Wage Survey

Portland and Salem Seminars Will Help Construction Industry Navigate Occupational Wage Survey

Occupational Wage SurveyFree workshops will provide tips to make survey reporting easier

Three construction industry-focused seminars will help contractors and subcontractors understand the Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) occupational wage survey.  Every year, BOLI collects survey information from thousands of construction contractors to determine prevailing wage rates for qualifying public projects.  The mandatory surveys can be difficult for some contractors, who must provide information about project locations, occupations of workers, hours worked, and benefits paid to each employee.

“We want to be a resource for contractors so that we can demystify the survey process. Our goal is to collect the most accurate data possible while minimizing the difficulty for contractors,” said Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian.

The seminars—free to construction industry participants—will include information on:

  • contractor’s responsibilities when they receive a survey;
  • recent changes;
  • how to report hours, wages and benefits; and
  • how the results help BOLI set prevailing wage rates.

The Oregon Employment Department will conduct the trainings and answer questions from participants.
