Contractors and Subcontractors on Public Building or Public Work Financed In Whole or In Part by Loans or Grants from the United States

29 CFR 3.1 - Purpose and scope.

  • Section Number: 3.1
  • Section Name: Purpose and scope.

    This part prescribes ``anti-kickback'' regulations under section 2 
of the Act of June 13, 1934, as amended (40 U.S.C. 276c), popularly 
known as the Copeland Act. This part applies to any contract which is 
subject to Federal wage standards and which is for the construction, 
prosecution, completion, or repair of public buildings, public works or 
buildings or works financed in whole or in part by loans or grants from 
the United States. The part is intended to aid in the enforcement of the 
minimum wage provisions of the Davis-Bacon Act and the various statutes 
dealing with federally assisted construction that contain similar 
minimum wage provisions, including those provisions which are not 
subject to Reorganization Plan No. 14 (e.g., the College Housing Act of 
1950, the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, and the Housing Act of 
1959), and in the enforcement of the overtime provisions of the Contract 
Work Hours Standards Act whenever they are applicable to construction 
work. The part details the obligation of contractors and subcontractors 
relative to the weekly submission of statements regarding the wages paid 
on work covered thereby; sets forth the circumstances and procedures 
governing the making of payroll deductions from the wages of those 
employed on such work; and delineates the methods of payment permissible 
on such work.
