Prevailing Wage Law

The hard work of Laborers, Carpenters, Operators, Electricians and construction workers of all trades contributes to the quality and success of California’s public works projects. Each deserves to be paid the minimum legally required wages for his or her work. In fact, California’s Prevailing Wage Law makes it illegal for employers to pay these workers less than the rate set by the State of California Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) for their specific type of work. Anything less that the rate set by the DIR is a prevailing wage violation.

Sometimes individual workers are paid less than the prevailing wage. Other times entire groups, or classes, of workers are cheated out of fair payment. Whether you were wronged individually or you believe that you are one of many others who have suffered the same injustice, we have the experience and resources you need on your side in Prevailing Wage disputes.
