DOL Announces Increased Prevailing Health and Welfare Benefits Rate
On June 23, 2022, the Department of Labor announced an increase to the rate for prevailing health and welfare benefits issued under the Service Contract Act.
Effective June 23, 2022, the rate is now $4.80 per hour, an increase from the 2021 rate of $4.60. This is good news to employees and employers with Service Contract Act work, as the fringe rate has lagged the increasing cost of providing benefits.
