BART’s Labor Compliance Unit (LCU) within the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) ensures that prime contractors, subcontractors and professional services firms on public works construction projects strictly adhere to Federal and State prevailing wage guidelines by collecting, monitoring and documenting certified payroll reports (CPR), verifying accuracy through site visits and worker interviews, and initiating the enforcement process in the event of violations.
California Labor Code §1726 requires that BART take cognizance of prevailing wage violations, and when BART identifies possible violations it can then formally notify the State of California's Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) who may impose penalties and recover back wages through the withholding of contract payments.
