New Jersey Prevailing Wage Update

Discover no-hassle ways to comply with New Jersey prevailing wage law.Many construction contractors and subcontractors do business with and/or receive funds from, public entities, thereby making these entities subject to the New Jersey Prevailing Wage Act. This is a complicated, almost arcane, law that has its roots in the union movement and, now, union wages and benefits. Employers have a difficult time complying with the statute, starting with whether they know/believe the job is a "public "project." They also face issues with assigning the correct craft to the work being performed, which might well be claimed by two or more unions.
Employers also are often beset with aggressive investigators from the Public Works Section of the NJDOL. Unions oftentimes file complaints with the agency, as the certified payrolls and other documents are public records sought out and scrutinized by (often) building trade unions. The differences in wage rates between private work and prevailing wage work (and within the world of prevailing wage, there are significant differences) make for dramatically huge assessments of alleged back due wages. Administrative penalties start at $2500 per offense and each week and/or each employee can be counted as a separate violation. It is, therefore, hugely consequential to know and understand the optimum method for withstanding an audit and coming out with a "reasonable" result. This topic helps persons responsible for administering and complying with prevailing wage regulations and requirements, and owners of contracting companies, to understand how to establish an overall policy/system for complying with the law and for responding to an audit and/or a complaint, whether by a single worker or a union.
