Note: If your employees are under a union contract and their pay rates meet or exceed the prevailing wage rate for the project, you are considered a Union employer. Otherwise you are considered a Non-Union employer. If you report both Union and Non-Union employees, you may either submit them separately or include them all on the Non-Union template, omitting the Non-Union fields for Union employees.
If you are a Union employer:
- Before submitting payroll data, you must provide a copy of the union collective bargaining agreement if we do not have an up-to-date copy.
- For each project, you are only required to submit one row of data for each job class, instead of reporting once for each employee.
- As long as the pay rates meet or exceed the prevailing wage rate for the project, you only need to submit data once for each job classification for that project (as opposed to every month), unless there is a change in union pay rates during the time that you work on the project.
- If you submit payroll data using a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, use the Union template. Use the union and local short names in the Name of Union and Local Union Number columns.
If you are a Non-Union employer:
- You do not need to upload a copy of the union collective bargaining agreement.
- You must report one row of data for each combination of Project, Employee, Job Class, Work Week, and Pay Rate. You need to report data for each week that the employee worked. How do I group my data?
- If you submit payroll data using a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, use the Non-Union template. You do not need to enter anything in the Name of Union and Local Number Number columns.
