How contractors can navigate local hiring requirements
from Construction Dive
Contractors participating in publicly funded construction projects often run up against conditions they might not otherwise come across in private work. Such requirements can range from payment and performance bonds, to paying prevailing wages or submitting certified payroll forms on a regular basis. While some of those conditions may be easier to comply with than others, few are as contentious as local hiring requirements, or those that ensure a predetermined percentage of the job's workforce come from within the project's surrounding area.
