2020 Brings with it new changes to prevailing wage and other wage and hour laws. Here are a few updates:
Maryland DLLR is changing its name to Maryland Department of Labor.
Nevada and New York have placed restrictions on an employer's right to drug test employees for cannabis use. Obviously certain exceptions apply for safety related positions.
California's Minimum wage has gone up to $12 an hour for employers with 25 or less employees and to $13 for those employers with 26 or more employees. Be aware that many cities have imposed a higher living wage for businesses and projects in their geographic limits.
California prevailing wage has expanded Skilled and Trained Workforce requirements to Community College Districts when using Design Build.
Prevailing wage has also been expanded to include preconstruction work including site review, feasibility studies and other preconstruction work, even if no actual construction work ever occurs on the property.
CCMI is starting its 18th year in business.
Thank you to our clients that have made our success possible.

You asked, we answered!
QUESTION: I have a Laborer who operates a forklift from time to time. Some one told me this was Operating Engineer's work. Which is it?
ANSWER: The operating of most machinery which has an employee riding on the machinery falls withing the classification of Operating Engineer. While laborers can use hand tools and diamond blade cutters, when it comes to forklifts, the Operating Engineers claim that work.
