From the Boston Business Journal:
GVW Inc. was indicted on Thursday by a Suffolk County grand jury on charges of failure to pay prevailing wage, failure to pay overtime, failure to submit true and accurate certified payroll records and perjury.
The Prevailing Wage Laws apply to all construction work performed on public works projects in Massachusetts. The Prevailing Wage Laws allow all contractors bidding on public works projects to enjoy a “level playing field” by standardizing the rate of pay the workers will earn. A company’s failure to pay its employees the prevailing wage for work performed at a public construction site can result in both civil and criminal penalties against the company and its owner.
Yes, I’m sure the contractors really “enjoy” it.
