WHATS NEW?
 
SB96 Recap
There still seems to be a lot of confusion from Public Agencies and Contractors about the new changes in the California law about filing PWC-100 forms, registering submitting payrolls and prevailing wage.   
 
So, here is a quick recap:
  • For all projects awarded on or after June 28, 2017, no requirement for agencies to file a PWC-100 form if the work is maintenance work and entire contract is under $15,000 OR if it involves other types of construction work (new, remodel, demolition) and the entire contract is less than $25,000.
  • PWC-100 forms now must be filed within 30 days of the contract award but not later than the first day work is performed on the project. The DIR may fine the agency $100 a day for each day the PWC-100 has not been filed.
  • For all projects awarded on or after June 28, 2017, no requirement for contractors to be a "registered public works contractor" if the work is maintenance work and entire contract is under $15,000 OR if it involves other types of construction work (new, remodel, demolition) and the entire contract is less than $25,000. (the dollar amount is based on the entire contract value and not the amount of a particular subcontract.)
  • For all projects awarded on or after June 28, 2017, no requirement for contractors to file eCPRs on the DIR's website if the work is maintenance work and entire contract is under $15,000 OR if it involves other types of construction work (new, remodel, demolition) and the entire contract is less than $25,000 (the dollar amount is based on the entire contract value and not the amount of a particular subcontract).
  • Prevailing Wage is STILL REQUIRED ON ALL PUBLIC WORKS CONTRACTS OVER $1,000 . The changes listed above do NOT change the $1,000 threshold for public works projects.
  • Additionally, there are penalties of $100 a day imposed upon the prime contractor (maximum $10,000), subcontractors (maximum $8,000) and Agency(maximum $10,000) if an unregistered contractor works on a project over $15,000 for Maintenance and over $25,000 for other construction.

FROM THE INBOX....
You asked, we answered!

QUESTION:
We are a Charter School which is located in a Charter City. The Charter City does not require prevailing wages on small projects, are we exempt too?
 
ANSWER:
There are very limited exemptions in the Labor Code from prevailing wages. Legacy Labor Compliance Programs (County of Sacramento, Caltrans, LAUSD and County of Los Angeles) and Charter Cities which choose to exercise the SB 7 exemption do not have to require prevailing wages on project under $15,000 for maintenance and repair and under $25,000 for new construction. However, this exemption is only available to Charter Cities.  General Law cities cannot take advantage of this exemption and neither can any other public agency.  A Charter School is still a public school and funds spent on construction remodeling, repair and maintenance are still "public works" which require the payment of prevailing wages for all work over $1,000.
