State and federal law require the payment of prevailing wages on “public works” of construction. California’s Prevailing Wage Law has been expanded to cover construction projects previously considered to be private works. Simantob Law Group’s public work and prevailing wage lawyers train and counsel builders, owners, contractors and sub-contractors on state and federal laws pertaining to payment of prevailing wages and other obligations in public works of construction including fringe benefits, holiday pay, record-keeping and apprenticeship.
In addition, we are engaged to represent clients before the California Department of Industrial Relations enforcement actions for retroactive payment of prevailing wages. As seasoned public works and prevailing wage litigators, we represent employers in the defense of prevailing wage civil actions by employees.
