New Yorkers- NYC Comptrollers office is holding $2 Million in unclaimed Prevailing Wage settlement funds
What is a Prevailing Wage Award?
New York City Comptroller enforces laws that require private employers/contractors engaged in New York City public works projects or service contracts to pay set the prevailing wage or living wage to their employees. If you work for a City contractor on a construction site or a service contract, you are entitled to receive prevailing wages or living wages.
If you were underpaid, the Comptroller’s office also works to recoup the amount of the underpayment plus interest due you. To find out if the Comptrollers office currently has funds for you or to claim underpayment read more at Prevailing Wages in NYC
