HPD’s proposed rule amendments authorize the imposition of civil penalties for violations of the prevailing wage and minimum average hourly wage requirements. The civil penalty cannot be more than 25% of either (a) the prevailing wage underpayment, or (b) the differential between the wages set forth in the contractor’s certified payroll report and the actual wages paid. The civil penalty shall be assessed based upon such factors as size and good faith of applicant, contractor or subcontractor, as relevant, the gravity of the violation, the violation history and the failure to comply with bookkeeping and other non-wage requirements.The proposed rule amendments also amend the definition of “Owner” and make some technical amendments to Chapter 50.
