Labor Commission Settles Unpaid Wage Claims On Public Works Project

Claims that an employee or contractor was not paid properly for their work often forms the subject of employment law disputes.

A recent settlement involving a construction company and the California Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) illustrates the point. The settlement grew out of a prevailing wage claim against the construction company after it was hired to build a public school in the Arcadia Unified School District.
