It focuses on the Contractor's perspective, along with the Contractor's considerations when choosing a benefits package and implementing an Employee Benefit Program.

Ethics and Contractor Expectations

Part three of the three-course series “Prevailing Wage for Service Providers”, this 3.0 hour course discusses the issues, frustrations, and headaches faced by Prevailing Wage Contractors on a daily and weekly basis, several of which are unique to the Contractor world. The service provider may alleviate certain frustrations for their customer when time is taken to properly understand the world in which the Contractor lives, but doing so may force the provider to address some difficult questions.
