Organizations that perform work on public works projects in Pennsylvania must pay the prevailing wage for various semiskilled positions, as determined by the Prevailing Wage Board.
Prevailing wages are determined for each job and locality. Employers are required to maintain detailed pay records showing exactly what wage was paid to each worker, the specific work performed and in what locality.
Employers who willfully violate the law may face penalties and risk losing their ability to bid on other state contracts. Unintentional violations are corrected by paying the worker the disputed funds.
