Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Prevailing Wage Act. Provides that "public works" includes all projects located in an enterprise zone as defined in the Illinois Enterprise Zone Act or located in an economic development project area as defined in the Economic Development Project Area Tax Increment Allocation Act of 1995, but does not include projects at an owner-occupied single family residence or owner-occupied multi-family residence located in an enterprise zone or economic development project area. Provides that all contractors and subcontractors required to pay the prevailing wage under the Act shall make payment of such wages in legal tender, without any deduction for food, sleeping accommodations, transportation, use of tools, or any other thing of any kind or description. Provides that the Department of Labor shall make revised prevailing wage rates available on its official website and such posting on the website shall be deemed notice to the contractor or subcontractor of the revised rate. Provides that the contractor or subcontractor shall be responsible to pay the revised rate. Provides that in lieu of posting the prevailing wage rates on the project site of the public works, a contractor which has a business location where laborers, workers and mechanics regularly visit may: (1) post in a conspicuous location at that business the current prevailing wage rates for each county in which the contractor is performing work; or (2) provide such laborer, worker or mechanic engaged on the public works project a written notice indicating the prevailing wage rates for the public works project. Makes other changes. Effective immediately.
