Prevailing wages are the wages required to be paid on statefunded construction projects. Wage rates are certified once a year in both highway/heavy and commercial type construction.
Any contractor or subcontractor performing work by contract in which state funds in whole or in part are involved must adhere to Minnesota prevailing wage laws. Highway projects are enforced by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDOT) and commercial projects are enforced by letting agencies. The certification in effect at the time the project is advertised (bids are asked for) applies for the duration of the project.
Have you been discriminated against by a potential or current employer -- as a job applicant or current employee? To best protect your legal rights you should discuss your situation with an employment lawyer. Meet with a local employment attorney sooner rather than later to protect your rights.
