If an employer cheats workers out of their prevailing wage, but returns the stolen wages before the state takes any enforcement action, the state lacks authority to issue appropriate penalties or sanctions - or even collect interest on the wages that were not lawfully paid. In effect, contractors could pay any back wages owed as soon as an investigation began, knowing this protected them from paying fines or even being found to have violated the law. Most of the contractors investigated every year by the state wage and hour office took this approach, and some did it multiple times. The law closed another loophole, one which had prevented the state from recovering back wages for workers if a complaint was filed more than 30 days after the job was completed. Dozens of contractors had used this loophole to keep stolen wages. The new rule allows for back wages to be recovered up to two years after a job ends. Finally, the law raised penalties from not less than ,000 of 20 percent of the prevailing wage underpayment, to not less than ,000 or 50% of the underpayment.

Brenda says her greatest reward in her job is “knowing that she’s part of building something that will be standing for years.” Randolph Center Principal McKinney-King says, “Brenda is truly one of our most prominent success stories, and we know her best will get even better!” The IUOE joins Local 68 and the New Jersey State AFL-CIO in congratulating Sister Graham and Sister Beasley- McCloed on their success, and we look forward to working with them during this coming election cycle.
