2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill permits the Commissioner of Labor and Workforce Development to issue a stop-work order against any employer who continues to pay less than prevailing wage rates in violation of P.L.1963, c.150 (C.34:11-56.25 et seq.) after the commissioner has issued a final order assessing a penalty for the violation. A stop-work order issued under the bill would require the cessation of all business operations at every site where the violation has continued and remain in effect until the commissioner issues an order releasing the stop-work order upon finding that the employer has agreed to pay the required wages and has paid any wages or penalty owed. As a condition of release from a stop-work order, the commissioner may require the employer to file with the department periodic reports for a probationary period of up to two years. The commissioner may assess a civil penalty of $5,000 per day against an employer for each day that it conducts business operations that are in violation of the stop-work order.
