Repeal of Indiana's CCWA

By: Mike Einterz

As of July 1, 2015, Indiana's Common Construction Wage Act was repealed by the legislature. In its place, however, there are several new requirements for contractors on an Indiana PublicWorks project. In general, the law now requires: 

1. 15% of the Work must be self-performed by the general contractor; 

2. Liability insurance of $1,000,000/$2,000,000

3. PublicWorks Bidders must qualify under either I.C. 4-13.6-4 or I.C. 8-23-10

4. Contractors must use E-Verifty and submit affidavits affirming that the company does not knowingly employ unauthorized aliens; 

5. Comply with all existing Wage Payment laws; 

6. If the contractor employs more than 50 "journeymen" then it must provide access to a training program and provide an apprenticeship training program that meets BAT standards. 

7. Starting July 2016, contractors must keep 3 years of payroll records. 

This is, of course, a very quick description of the new requirements. Give us a call so we can review how the new law affects your business.
