WASHINGTON, Dec. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are urging an employee of a highway, building contractor or company that is involved in providing services to the federal government to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if their employer is not paying mandated Davis Bacon prevailing wage to their employees. The reward potential for this specific type of information can be significant. The catch is the employer must be misrepresenting what they are paying their employees to the government.
"We are launching a major national initiative to identify potential whistleblowers nationwide - whose employer is intentionally violating the Davis Bacon Act because we think government contractors violate it in every state. Davis Bacon wages also apply to subcontractors of a contractor involved in federal work. Because of this our national initiative will also be state specific via our state specific whistleblower initiatives." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
What might a Davis Bacon Act Violation look like: "Let's say we have a highway contractor or a general contractor working on a federally funded job. The hypothetical company has 100 employees that are laborers. The prevailing wage for the area where the work is being done is $25 per hour-as per the Davis Bacon Act. The job will last for 15 months and during this time the laborers are all working 40-hour work weeks. In this scenario, a laborer should be making $1000 per week or $4000 per month if they are making $25 per hour.
"However, if the laborer is only being paid $17.50 per hour they will be making $700 per month. This is a $300 difference. If we multiply the $300 difference X 100 (the number of laborers) the total is $30,000 per week or $120,000 per month X 15 months equals $1,800,000. The catch is the company/contractor must be falsely reporting they are paying the prevailing wage. This $1,800,000 number is just a starting point as we would like to discuss with a potential whistleblower anytime at 866-714-6466. We can potentially help a whistleblower increase this number. As an example, if the contractor has been doing the same thing on other jobs over the last four years the potential whistleblower reward might increase significantly and we would like to help." http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com
The Corporate Whistleblower Center believes their national initiative focused on companies that are violating the Davis Bacon Act could produce significant whistleblower rewards in most states. If an employee of a contractor or company has proof their employer is engaged falsifying payroll records in violation Davis Bacon Act prevailing wage laws they are encouraged to contact the Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466.
