Auditing direct labor in construction projects

October 13, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

Baker Tilly CPE Webinars

Participants of the live webinar will be eligible for 1 free CPE credit.


Direct labor costs can make up 50% or more of a project’s construction costs. Consequently, seemingly insignificant charges may result in significant project costs. From double billing holiday and vacation time to miscalculations of time and half rates to contractors owning the power to bill for profit redistribution, common labor risks can make or break a project. This webinar will demonstrate how an auditor can test and analyze direct labor rates and costs to prevent unnecessary direct labor costs.

In this case study-focused presentation, participants will learn how to:

  • Identify contract terms that increase labor costs
  • Detect unfavorable billing practices
  • Write a direct labor audit program
  • Analyze labor rates for realized costs
