Prevailing Wage Act
The Prevailing Wage Act (Title 12-4-401 (Part 4)) protects wage earners from unfair practices regarding pay on state-funded highway construction projects. The Act also requires the Department of Labor and Workforce Development to conduct a survey to determine wage rates for various job classifications for state-funded highway construction projects. The data are solicited from the state's contractors annually in highway construction. You may reach us by calling the Labor Standards Unit at 1-866-588-6814 or 615-741-2858.
