Prevailing Wage Enforcement

Workers on public works projects must be paid a minimum hourly rate called the "prevailing wage."

Every public works project covered by the state prevailing wage laws must have a rate sheet from the Department of Labor Standards (DLS). The rate sheet sets out the prevailing wages that contractors must pay for each type of work performed on the project. Contractors must post the rate sheet at the project site and also submit certified payroll records to the awarding authority showing that they are paying the correct prevailing wages to workers on the project. You can file a complaint with the Attorney General's Office if you think the prevailing wage laws are not being followed.
