On Jan. 13, the Supreme Court blocked the OSHA COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard for employers with 100 or more employees. This webinar will explain what the Supreme Court decision means for construction employers.
In a separate ruling by the Supreme Court the same day, the court lifted injunctions that had been issued against the CMS vaccination mandate applicable to health care institutions and their suppliers and contractors. The webinar will also provide an overview of this decision and its impact on contractors.
In addition, learn the latest on the nationwide injunction against the federal contractor vaccination mandate.

Nathaniel Peniston, vice president, The Contractors Plan; Adam Bonsky, CEO and president, ABC Insurance Trust
The $1.2 trillion, bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act has been signed into law. How will you prepare and position your company to win and manage this new volume of work? Competition for prevailing wage jobs is fierce. One of the most significant challenges for open shop government contractors is ensuring compliance with numerous rules and regulations while ensuring profitability. Whether competing on projects subject to the Davis-Bacon Act or local prevailing wage ordinances, contractors must be well-informed and have a team of experts to help them adhere to the complex rules and regulations at the state and federal level.
This webinar will define fringe benefits, how you can simplify the processes of meeting the prevailing wage requirements and how can you offer your employees a more rich and stable benefits experience. The discussion will cover how contractors can build a prevailing wage-compliant benefits strategy that helps attract and retain key employees. We will also discuss what actions you can take to be in the best position to comply with regulations and survive an audit.
