AEC PUBLIC WORKS/PREVAILING WAGE PROGRAM

Mission

The mission of the AEC Public Works/Prevailing Wage Program is to provide professional assistance and education to AEC member firms performing public works projects with respect to compliance issues and the technical aspects of labor and prevailing wage laws.

Goals

The goals of the AEC Public Works/Prevailing Wage Program are as follows:

Advise members of the contractors’ prevailing wage and payroll reporting responsibilities on public works projects and the current enforcement policies of governmental agencies.

Provide procedures that emphasize a preventative approach to monitoring the payment of wages to all workers and strive to minimize the potential for penalties or liquidated damages.

AEC members who would like assistance with prevailing wage issues may contact Steven Manthe at (925) 930-0014.
