How do I know if I am receiving the correct prevailing wage for work done for a public works contract under Mass. Gen. Laws ch 149 §27F
Five year contract began in 2018. The prevailing wage rate sheet has three rates : one for 7/2017 (year before we began contract or were awarded it)
7/2018 and 7/2019.
The most updated rate sheet for the contract has 3 annual rate increases beginning with 7/2021 through 7/2023. This rate sheet was not made available. Nobody can answer my question at the employer and they do not have the most updated sheet posted. Neither rate sheet has a pay rate for the year 7/2020.

Strange that neither sheet contains 2020 rates and would like to know if this is irregular/ why have we not had rate increase since 2029 despite annual increases during duration of five year contract ...Read More
We are a Cultural Resources Firm (Archaeologist and Paleontologists want I went through training on Contractor License 1 and a half years ago. I remember there was a section on the Dept of Industrial Relations that listed all types of industries who were and were not subject to prevailing wages.

I cannot remember which section this information in under. Do you?
Would very much appreciate the help.
Thank you -

Where are the lines for who gets prevailing wage and who doesn't, on a job? Examples: If I am programming a bunch of cameras at our office that will be taken to the job-site, should I get paid a prevailing wage rate for that job? If a salary employee goes out to the job-site to work, do they get a differential? If I go on-site but in an administrative capacity, to plan cable pathways or instruct a sub-contractor on what they will be doing, do I get prevailing wage? I find a lot of conflicting answers in Google searching. Thank you....Read More
