Effective May 1, 2019, contractors who apply for or seek to renew their New Jersey public works contractor registration face a new and potentially game-changing requirement: mandatory participation in an apprenticeship program approved by the United States Department of Labor. Without it, a contractor will not be registered and will not be eligible to work on the vast majority of work subject to the New Jersey Prevailing Wage Act.
This plain English, high-impact program that will help your business prepare to continue doing public construction projects. Littler Shareholder Russ McEwan, who counsels extensively on state and federal prevailing wage compliance, will moderate a panel discussion concerning the new law and its anticipated regulations. Panelists include David Fish, Executive Director, Legal and Regulatory Services for the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development and Nicholas Toth, Assistant Director - Office of Apprenticeship at the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development. Attendees can expect to walk away from the program with a definitive understanding of what they must do to protect this aspect of their business.
Registration: 8:30 - 9:00 am
Program: 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
