Unpaid Prevailing Wages on Government Contracts

Unpaid Prevailing Wages on Government Contracts

Public works projects and public contracts often require workers on those projects to be paid the prevailing wage. All too often, government contractors commit wage theft against their employees by withholding, or skimming, some of their employees’ hard-earned hourly wages.

If your employer is not paying you and/or your co-workers the prevailing wage on a public project, you may have a claim for those unpaid wages, as well as an action under the state or federal False Claims Act (sometimes referred to as a qui tam action).
