DOL Wage Calculators Available Online
As of Nov. 14, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is publishing calculators on its website to assist employers using Sec 14(c). The calculators help in determining prevailing rates, adjusting prevailing rates for increases in state minimum wages and establishing commensurate hourly rates and piece rates.
These calculators do not change any rules or regulations, but they may help ensure employers that they have determined prevailing rates and commensurate wages in a way that will meet DOL requirements. The notice and links can be found at: www.dol.gov/whd/sec14c/calculators/
The DOL Wage and Hour Division asked ACCSES to identify providers for beta testing of the calculators. Thank you to those who assisted with the testing to help ensure these calculators will be of assistance to providers.
