Lawyers Who Understand Prevailing Wage Law / Regulatory Compliance

Nonunion contractors working on public improvement projects are required to pay prevailing wages. This includes wages and supplements. A contractor must maintain certified payroll reports showing its labor hours and costs. On a public works project, unpaid workers can make a claim against the general contractor's payment bond if a subcontractor does not pay prevailing wages.

Minority Business Enterprises

Most public entities require contractors to achieve goals for giving work to businesses owned by minorities, women or disadvantaged persons (MBE/WBE/DBE). In such instances, the minority business must provide a "commercially useful function" in order that such work qualifies toward the contract's goals. We are seeing increasing enforcement of such matters.
