Prevailing wage laws protect the rights of California workers
The law defines pay rates and penalties for violations, which can include:
- Unpaid overtime or underpaid overtime
- Misclassification resulting in improper pay
- Fringe benefits not provided or underfunded
- Shaving hours or forcing work off-the-clock
- Unpaid travel time
- Untimely payment of wages owed after separation
The California Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) sets prevailing wage rates that govern pay on public works projects. If you are not paid according to prevailing wage laws governing your job classification, you may be improperly paid.
