Construction Contractors and Contracts

ORS 701.108
Failure to comply with prevailing wage rate or other wage and hour standards for energy efficiency and sustainable technology projects


(1)

If a project financed under the energy efficiency and sustainable technology loan program is to be constructed for a commercial structure, the State Department of Energy shall require that the certified contractor pay the employees used for the project at the prevailing wage rate determined by the Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries for each trade or occupation employed. If a project is not to be constructed for a commercial structure, but the department is uncertain whether prevailing wage requirements apply to the project, the department shall consult with the Bureau of Labor and Industries. As used in this subsection, “commercial structure” means a structure that is not a residential structure.

(2)

If the Construction Contractors Board receives a complaint that a contractor certified under ORS 701.119 (Certification to participate in small scale local energy project program) has failed to comply with a wage and hours standard for work on a project financed under the energy efficiency and sustainable technology loan program, the board shall forward the complaint to the Bureau of Labor and Industries. If the bureau determines that the contractor has violated a wage and hours standard for work on a project financed under the loan program, the bureau shall notify the board of the determination.
