Certified Payroll Reports. If you’re doing prevailing wage work in New Jersey, you know that they are required by law and that they effectively memorialize your pay practices for all to see. Whether it’s the Department of Labor, a competitor, a plaintiffs’ lawyer or a union, your Certified Payroll Reports are on display and available for potential use against you.
On August 3rd, please join other ABC-NJ Chapter members for a two hour educational webinar on Certified Payroll Reports hosted by Chapter counsel and experienced prevailing wage practitioner, Russ McEwan of Littler Mendelson PC.
Russ will dissect the current Certified Payroll Report and unpack many basic principles of prevailing wage compliance along the way, all with an eye on helping Chapter members reduce their financial and legal risk.
Ample time will be left for a Q&A session.
