Customer Question

We have a GSA contract that includes a HHS requirement for holidays and Fringe Benefits for hourly workers. It stipulates that if they do not receive the benefits they are then to receive an additional $4 per hour. We have questions about this and can not get a straight answer. The hourly workers do not work on the GSA contract for 40 hours per week, as they may be working on multiple contracts in any given week. Do only the hours that they work on the GSA project count for the additional pay? If we cover some of the fringe benefits but not all, can that extra $4/hr be prorated and if so how? It also has been interpreted by some of our people that these HHS clauses only apply to government workers, and not Contractors such as ourselves. Can you give us the straight answer?

These clauses do apply to contractors. They apply when the worker does 40 hours that are charged back to the government. The additional money cannot be prorated.
