FURTHER DELAYS FOR DIR’S LABOR COMPLIANCE UNIT

May 2011
Number 8

On May 2, 2011, the Office of Administrative Law approved a request by the Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) to again delay implementing DIR’s Compliance Monitoring Unit (CMU) for Labor Compliance Programs (LCP) for school and community college construction projects. (Please see Client News Brief No. 28, July 2010 and Client Alert No. 16, November 2010 for more details regarding the recent developments of the LCP requirements.)

The effect of this latest action is to suspend through July 31, 2011 any operations by the CMU, along with the fee which was to be imposed for its labor compliance enforcement. For now, school districts and community college districts should continue to administer their own LCP programs or obtain the services of third-party LCP providers for projects, as appropriate.

We will continue to monitor developments from DIR and provide any updates on the CMU and the related fee. In the meantime, if you have questions regarding labor compliance requirements or construction matters in general, please contact one of our eight offices located statewide or consult our website.
