ALL OCCUPATIONS LISTED ABOVE RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS:
VACATION: 1 week of paid vacation after 1 year of service with a contractor or successor; 2 weeks after 2 years; 3 weeks after 10 years; and 4 weeks after 20 years. Length of service includes the whole span of continuous service with the present contractor or successor, wherever employed, and with the predecessor contractors in the performance of similar work at the same Federal facility. (Reg. 29 CFR 4.173)
HOLIDAYS: A minimum of ten paid holidays per year, New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Jr's Birthday, Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans' Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. (A contractor may substitute for any of the named holidays another day off with pay in accordance with a plan communicated to the employees involved.) (See 29 CFR 4174)
THE OCCUPATIONS WHICH HAVE PARENTHESES AFTER THEM RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING BENEFITS (as numbered):
1) HEALTH & WELFARE: $3.24 per hour or $129.60 per week or $561.60 per month
2) HEALTH & WELFARE: $4.00 per hour
NOTE: The fringe benefits listed in this determination are based on a standard 8-hour workday an 40-hour work week. Cash equivalent fringe benefits may be paid in accordance with the principles discussed in Subpart B of Regulations, 29 CFR Part 4.
HEALTH & WELFARE & PENSON PAYMENTS:
These payments are due on all hours "paid for" up to a maximum of 40 hours per week. Such benefits do not stop, but continue to accrue and are paid to employees while on sick leave, holiday, vacation, etc. For example:
a. An employee who works four days, 40 hours per week, is entitled to 40 hours of health and welfare and pension payments. If an employee works three days, 12 hours per day, then such employee is entitled to 36 hours of health and welfare and pension benefits.
b. An employee who works 32 hours and also receives eight hours of holiday pay is entitled to the maximum of 40 hours of health and welfare and pension payments in that work week. If the employee works more than 32 hours and also receives eight hours of holiday pay, the employee is still only entitled to the maximum of 40 hours health and welfare and pension payment.
c. If an employee is off work for two weeks on vacation and receives 80 hours of vacation pay, the employee must also receive 80 hours of health and welfare and pension benefits during the vacation period. However, if an employee is entitled to two weeks paid vacation but does not take a vacation and works the full 52 weeks in they year (i.e., 52 weeks for work plus two weeks of vacation pay) the employee is due health and welfare and pension payments for only 52 weeks during the year.
VACATION AND HOLIDAY PAYMENTS:
Regardless of the number of hours in an employee's scheduled workday or work week, holiday pay for one day is not required to exceed the equivalent of eight hours pay, and vacation pay for one week is not required to exceed the equivalent of 40 hours pay.
** UNIFORM ALLOWANCE **
If employees are required to wear uniforms in the performance of this contract (either by the terms of the Government contract, by the employer, by the state or local law, etc.), the cost of furnishing such uniforms and maintaining (by laundering or dry cleaning) such uniforms is an expense that may not be borne by an employee where such cost reduces the hourly rate below that required by the wage determination. The Department of Labor will accept payment in accordance with the following standards as compliance:
The contractor or subcontractor is required to furnish all employees with an adequate number of uniforms without cost or to reimburse employees for the actual cost of the uniforms. In addition, where uniform cleaning and maintenance is made the responsibility of the employee, all contractors and subcontractors subject to this wage determination shall (in the absence of a bona fide collective bargaining agreement providing for a different amount, or the furnishing of contrary affirmative proof as to the actual cost), reimburse all employees for such cleaning and maintenance at a rate of $3.35 per week (or $.67 cents per day). However, in those instances where the uniforms furnished are made of "wash and wear" materials, may be routinely washed and dried with other personal garments, and do not require any special treatment such as dry cleaning, daily washing, or commercial laundering in order to meet the cleanliness or appearance standards set by the terms of the Government contract, by the contractor, by law, or by the nature of the work, there is no requirement that employees be reimbursed for uniform maintenance costs.
