The Office of the Labor Commissioner has released its 2015-2016construction wage survey for contractors throughout the state.
In a statement, officials said completed surveys are due by 5 p.m. on July 15 in order to be included in the process for determining the prevailing wage rates, which will be posted on Oct. 1, as required by Nevada law.
Nevada law requires the Labor Commissioner to annually survey contractors who have performed construction work during the past year to determine prevailing wage rates for the upcoming year. Prevailing wage rates are required to be paid on Nevada public works construction projects such as roadways and government buildings that cost more than $100,000.
Senate Bill 119, which became effective March 6, excluded construction, alteration, repair, remodeling, reconstruction, and improvement of property of a school district, charter school, and the Nevada System of Higher Education from the prevailing wage requirements.
Contractors can access the survey by visiting www.laborcommissioner.com. The website also contains links to Nevada’s prevailing wage laws, as well as state-required posters and other useful employment information.
Individuals may also request a copy by calling the Office of the Labor Commissioner in Las Vegas at (702) 486-2797, or in Carson City at (775) 687-4850.
