Working Prevailing Wage in a New State?

Contractors who do not typically bid on out of state work may not realize the significant wage, hour, and overtime differences that can exist when crossing state lines. Just because a company is based in Kentucky (or Ohio, or Missouri, etc.) does not exclude them from the wage, hour, and overtime laws of the state where a project is located.  
In total, 32 states have their own prevailing wage regulations, many of which differ from the federal prevailing wage statutes and from each other. Since noncompliance with prevailing wage regulations can be such a costly issue, it is worth the time to understand some of the key differences from state to state, especially since some items have to be addressed before a company’s employees ever step foot on the project site.

Just a Reminder...

What's New

On Prevailing Wage projects in Ohio, contractors are required to furnish each employee not covered by collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with written notification of the job classification to which the employee is assigned, the prevailing wage applicable to that classification (separated into hourly rate of pay and fringe payments), and the identity of the Prevailing Wage Coordinator appointed by the public authority. This same notification is to be furnished every time the employee's job classification changes. We've been preparing these notifications for some time, but some of our customers were not aware. Existing customers should contact us if you'd like these prepared for you (here is a sample).
