Federal law and California law provide a number of protections for workers in the construction industry. One of the protections offered to construction workers is the prevailing wage. If you are a contractor or subcontractor who has failed to pay the prevailing wage rate to construction workers who have performed work on a public works project, you may be confronted with a legal action by a public entity.

How We Can Help You To Assert Your Rights
The federal prevailing wage law is found primarily in the Davis-Bacon Act. The California application of prevailing wage law is found primarily in the California Labor Code and California Code of Regulations.
Such laws require that contractors and subcontractors must pay a prevailing wage rate to workers for work performed on public works projects. There are few exceptions and compliance with the law is critical.
Prevailing wages differ depending on the trade and geographical area, and they are subject to periodic change. Contractors and subcontractors must fill out payroll reporting forms to show that they are in compliance with prevailing wage laws.
If you need help complying with prevailing wage laws or you are accused of violating prevailing wage laws, we can help. Our knowledge of the law and the construction industry ensures that you will receive the skilled and knowledgeable representation you require.
