As the leaves turn to fall colors it will soon be time for contractors to start planning for 2016.

To help merit shop contractors make sense of prevailing wage bona fide fringe benefit plans we have written “Working the Fringe”. This latest white paper provides background and specific examples of how contractors can best leverage the fringe benefit obligation of the prevailing wage law to:

  1. Bid more competitively
  2. Avoid unanticipated liabilities
  3. Provide superior benefit programs compared to those provided by trade unions

If you have additional questions please do not hesitate to contact us or download our whitepapers – “Harnessing the Power of Supplemental Unemployment Benefit Plans” and “Working the Fringe.”

Please also view our short animated video, to see how constructing a bona fide fringe benefit plan, can move prevailing wage dollars out of payroll and reduce associated costs. Increase profits. Submit more competitive bids. Build employee loyalty.
