Prevailing Wage for Union Work
Back to Practice Areas
If you are involved in construction projects or certain construction services (such as security or fire) or construction work, with at least some government funding, you may be entitled to Prevailing Wage.
"Prevailing Wages" are hourly rates set by the government to ensure that workers on publicly funded buildings and construction projects receive a fair wage similar to that of unionized workers.
Prevailing Wages are wage rates set by government agencies and must be paid for certain types of construction work and other construction service work performed on government-funded projects.
Prevailing Wages are set by the federal, state, and some local governments, including New York City, and generally correspond to union rates for similar jobs.

Prevailing wage rates consist of two parts: the “base” wage and a “supplement” intended to cover retirement, health care and other employee benefits. Prevailing wage rates also include daily overtime, higher rates for nighttime and weekend work, and double-time pay for work performed on certain holidays.
If you believe you should have been paid prevailing wages, or if you are required to “kickback” or return a portion of your wages to your employer, contact Human Rights Advocacy Firm to discuss your potential claim.

Remember at our firm we believe that fair compensation is your right and the employers duty.
