California's Prevailing Wage Law

Many construction projects in California are handled as "public works" projects ― projects that are funded by the government. Contractors want to be the lowest bidder, and in doing so, they often violate California's prevailing wage law.

The state of California sets a pay rate for construction workers of all trades. This pay rate is reviewed twice a year and modified, if necessary. Contractors must pay the prevailing wage and are violating the law if they do not pay that amount. Our attorneys provide experienced services to construction workers of all trades who are working on public works projects. Talk to us if you are not paid the prevailing wage while working as any of the following:

  • Laborer
  • Carpenter
  • Drywall installer
  • Electrician
  • Operating engineer
  • Painter
  • Journeyman
  • Teamster
  • Any other type of construction worker in a public works project

Gigliotti & Gigliotti has extensive labor law experience, specifically in wage and hour claims. We know contractors are motivated to land government contracts and will neglect their own employees in an effort to be the lowest bidder. We are here to protect the rights and interests of construction workers.
