In 2018, California continued the regulatory onslaught on prevailing wage contractors in particular and the construction industry in general. Construction contractors and developers who perform work on public works projects may be surprised, if not startled, to learn of the expansion of California's Prevailing Wage Law (PWL) into new areas that were previously considered to be private construction projects. The steady expansion of the onerous obligations imposed on contractors make compliance increasingly more difficult and can turn a potentially profitable project into a financial disaster.
Each year this decade, California's state and local lawmakers have enacted some new prevailing wage legislation, and other laws impacting the construction industry, and last year was no different. New laws taking effect in 2019 will directly impact contractors and developers.
The speakers will be presenting an update on developments affecting the construction industry, including the state PWL. They will discuss the past year's legislative, legal and administrative developments, and offer preventive measures and practical suggestions.
The topics will include:
