Prevailing Rate of Wage

Pursuant to RCW 39.12.015, 39.12.020, and WAC 296-127-011, on February 1, 2012, the industrial statistician and director of the department of labor and industries will determine and publish on the internet the statewide prevailing rates of wage. Pursuant to WAC 296-127-011, these rates become effective March 2, 2012, thirty days after publication.

Every contractor and subcontractor on every public works project must file a statement of intent to pay prevailing wages and an affidavit of wages paid. Both forms must be filed on every project. The filing of the affidavit of wages paid does not set aside the requirement to also file the statement of intent to pay prevailing wages. The department may fine contractors $500 for failure to file these forms.
