Oregon law (ORS 279C.815) requires the Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries to conduct surveys to determine prevailing wage rates for specified trades and occupations in non-residential construction. The bureau has contracted with the Oregon Employment Department to conduct this survey and collect relevant data for determining prevailing wage rates in fourteen regions specified by law. Response to the survey is mandatory under state law (ORS 279C.815(3)). This tutorial will assist you in determining what information you will need to report. Information will need to be provided for the following four weeks: November 12, 2012 May 12, 2013 February 12, 2013 August 12, 2013 In order to complete the survey you will need to put together: Payroll and benefit data for the four weeks listed in the survey The hours worked by employees on non-residential projects Where the work was completed What type of work employees were performing Click To Continue Click To Go Back

3. Next youll need to determine whether your company was involved in non- residential construction work during any of the four weeks identified on the form. Construction includes initial construction, reconstruction, and major renovations. Labor performed on-site in connection with material deliveries is also considered construction work. Routine maintenance (as described on the next slide) is not included except as noted.
Did your firm do any non-residential construction work (see relevant definitions) in Oregon during the work weeks that include the following dates: November 12, 2012May 12, 2013 February 12, 2013August 12, 2013 You can click on the type of work below to see definitions of what would, and would not, be considered non-residential construction.

Next we will assist you in organizing your records to complete the Wage Data Form. Isolate your non-residential hours for the payroll weeks that include: November 12, 2012; February 12, 2013; May 12, 2013; August 12, 2013; -EXCLUDE- owners, exempt supervisors who spend 20% or less time performing duties that are manual or physical as opposed to managerial, administrative staff, maintenance work, shop work, and any labor not performed on the job-site, all those who worked on residential job-sites.
We will now step you through how to report these workers on the Wage Data Form: Be sure you have filled out all of the contact information and listed your survey ID, signed and dated the other side of the form. You can find your survey ID number on the back of the survey booklet. 1.Locate and refer to the Occupation-Region Reporting Table to determine which employees you will need to report. 1.Number of Workers: You may report more than one worker on the same line if all the information for that line is exactly the same (Wage Rate Region, Skill Level, Wages and Benefits). The Hours column (7) should reflect the combined hours worked by all employees on this line. Note: If an employee was paid more than one rate, or worked in more than one region or occupation, you must provide the hours and wages for each case. When this occurs, you will need to use more than one line on the Wage Data Form for that employee. 2.Wage Rate Region: This is the region where the work took place. It is not where the business is located. Click here to see a map of the Wage Rate Regions 3.Occupation of Employee: Enter the occupational code for all the employees listed on the line. If a single employee worked in more than one occupation, or in more than one region during the required weeks, report the employee on more than one line according to the hours worked. The Occupational Codes and Definitions of Covered Occupations begins on page 8 and provides codes, titles, and descriptions.
