New DIR unit will monitor prevailing wage compliance
SACRAMENTO -The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) is alerting licensees to the new Compliance Monitoring Unit within the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) that will begin operating January 1, 2012, when amendments to DIR regulations become effective. DIR’s Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE) is offering seminars and webinars to help educate contractors and agencies that award public works contracts about prevailing wage laws on projects funded by state bonds.
The first seminar is scheduled for January 4, 2012, from 10 a.m. to noon, at the Elihu Harris State Building in Oakland. Registration is available online and seating is limited. Other seminars throughout the state will be announced by DLSE as they become available.
Register online for webinars geared toward contractors that explain how to submit certified payroll records through DIR’s new electronic reporting system and how to comply with state labor laws. Awarding agencies can also register for webinars to learn about their state labor law responsibilities.
Since beginning a pilot project in September 2010, CSLB has investigated 153 complaints related to state labor law violations on public works projects; investigation results have included 21 licensee citations, 3 non-licensee citations, and one referral for criminal prosecution.
