Prevailing Wage Rates

When a person works on projects that are public works (that is they are built using public funds and/or public consideration) contractors are required to pay the Prevailing Wage rate assigned to the proper classification. These Prevailing Wage Classifications and related Prevailing Wage Rates are set forth in semi-annual and annual bulletins published by the Director of Industrial Relations ("DIR").

The proper prevailing wage rate for the work performed in the State of California is considered the minimum wage payable on that project. It is the only legal wage that may be paid for work in execution of a public work contract. In addition to the required straight-time hourly rate of pay, the term "prevailing wage" includes a designated rate for overtime and holiday work, travel time and subsistence pay (Cal. Code of Regulations § 16000). All such rates are published semi-annually by the California Department of Industrial Relations ("DIR") pursuant to pertinent California regulations.

The current list of Prevailing Wage Rate for the State of California can be found here: State of California Prevailing Wage Rates.

For assistance in understanding if you are being paid the proper prevailing wage rate please call our offices for confidential assistance at 714-953-1010 or email us.
