As of May 1, 2019, contractors who apply for or seek to renew their New Jersey public works contractor registration face a new and potentially game-changing requirement: mandatory participation in an apprenticeship program approved by the United States Department of Labor. Without it, a contractor will not be registered and will not be eligible to work on the vast majority of work subject to the New Jersey Prevailing Wage Act. This means, without a valid registration – you CAN NOT bid public work.
This plain English, high-impact seminar will help your business prepare to continue doing public construction projects. Littler Shareholder Russ McEwan, who counsels extensively on state and federal prevailing wage compliance, will moderate our event and lead the discussions concerning this new law and its anticipated regulations. Kevin Triplett, of the NJ Department of Labor, will attend and take part in a 30-minute Q&A after the seminar.
The event will be held at Harrah’s Resort and Casino in Atlantic City NJ on Friday, November 22, 10:00 – 11:00 am, with registration beginning at 9:30. Attendees can expect to walk away from our program with a definitive understanding of what they must do to protect this aspect of their business.
