The legal obligation to pay prevailing wages and supplements is enforced primarily through administrative procedures managed and controlled by the Department of Labor Bureau of Public Works (or the New York City Comptroller, for New York City Contracts). Some of the law’s provisions are also enforceable criminally, and others may be enforced by private action by aggrieved workers or their union representatives. This white paper reviews criminal enforcement, private enforcement, and enforcement by the BPW or NYC Comptroller.
