About The Prevailing Wage Protections For Government Project Jobs

Employees working on public or government projects must be paid the current prevailing wage, which is set by the state of New York. The prevailing wage is in place to protect people who work for companies that contract with the government. If you believe your employer should be paying you the prevailing wage and isn’t, contact our lawyers at The Klein Law Group, P.C., in New York City.

Prevailing wage issues can be complicated and time-consuming. It is important to hire an attorney who is knowledgeable in the area of employment law and, specifically, in wage and hour claims.
