On all public works projects, prevailing wage is a necessary requirement. On any public works project, you need to ensure that you stay compliant with all relevant laws by offering the prevailing wage in hourly wages, overtime and benefits to all workers affected by this legislation. Unfortunately, compliance isn't always so simple. Complex legal issues, exceptions and ever-changing laws can make prevailing wage regulations challenging to understand.
