Labor and wage compliance contains several elements:
Equal Employment Opportunity
Federal laws require that employers provide equal employment opportunities in hiring, promotion, discharge, pay, fringe benefits, job training, classification, referral, and other aspects of employment and to not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability, or genetic information.
Both federal and state law establish mandatory prevailing wage rates for each employment classification.
Prevailing wage compliance includes the requirement that contractors enter electronic payrolls weekly through WisDOT’s Civil Rights Compliance System (CRCS).
TrANS is a means of encouraging the development of the next generation of workers through a 120-hour industry awareness class that prepares applicants for work in road construction trades. Employers of graduates of the TrANS educational program may receive a per-hour wage reimbursement from WisDOT.
