An Introduction to New York Prevailing Wage Update
Make sure you are compliant with New York's prevailing wage law.
The Federal Government and about half the states in the country have prevailing wage laws that fix minimum wages for construction workers on public works projects at the rates prevailing in the community for similar work. In New York, such wages are guaranteed by the State Constitution, Article 1, Section 17. This provision became part of the State Constitution in 1938 but even before that the Labor Law contained a similar, statutory requirement. Today, the constitutional mandate is implemented by Labor Law Article 8, and particularly § 220 and § 220-b. This white paper offers an overview of prevailing wage laws in New York.
