Protecting Your Interests In Regulatory Compliance Matters
Regulatory compliance cases are extremely complex and require skilled handling. Silverberg P.C. has long been a legal advocate for construction companies facing a wide range of regulatory compliance matters. Attorney Karl Silverberg routinely tries such cases in state court, federal court and administrative tribunals and in arbitration matters.
What Is A Prevailing Wage Claim?
Nonunion contractors working on public improvement projects are required to pay prevailing wages and supplements. Failure to pay prevailing wages often subjects a contractor to civil penalties. This can include personal liability for its officers and possibly criminal liability. 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.
When facing such claims, you need a lawyer on your side who works to protect your interests. Silverberg P.C. provides the types of representation that businesses require when prevailing wage allegations are raised.
Minority Business Enterprises Representation
For the most part, public entities are required to achieve goals regarding the providing of work to businesses owned by minorities, women and disadvantaged people (MBE/WBE/DBE). The minority business must provide a “commercially useful function” for the work to qualify toward the contract’s goals. Enforcement of this requirement appears to be on the rise.
Since these cases involve such precise terminology, it is important to have an advocate on your side who can provide you guidance in such matters. Silverberg P.C. can help you make the best possible choices.
