Problem

Our client sought and was awarded a bid for installation work in Washington state. The owners learned that they would have to operate as a union shop, and were unprepared to handle all the details related to this. The construction project was subject to wage and union requirements of the Davis Bacon Act.

Solution

The business owner, Rob, was fiercely independent and appreciated full autonomy within his operation. After all, this independent spirit was a major reason he had started his own business in the first place. However, he understood the need for professional Human Resources assistance, especially in areas he hadn’t ventured into before.

StaffScapes experts were able to advise him on the steps he needed to take for theis new Washington operation and provide assistance while leaving him in control of day-to-day decisions.

Result

The job went forward and was a success. Rob was pleased to know that with expert advice, he had been able to assign work appropriately, pay his employees a fair and prevailing wage and comply with the laws of both states and the federal government. With this successful bid, he was in great position to bid and secure future jobs in other areas.
