Illinois Prevailing Wage Act

Effective July 1, 1987, College of DuPage is required to comply with the annual requirements and other provisions of the Illinois Prevailing Wage Act (Ill. Rev. Stat. 820 ILCS 130/1 et. al.). The Illinois Department of Labor has stated that during the month of June of each calendar year, each public body must investigate and ascertain the prevailing rate of wages for its area for new construction and maintenance work performed by employees of contractors and sub-contractors engaged in public works and publicly post or keep available these rates for inspection by any interested party. In addition to passing the resolution for establishing the prevailing rate for DuPage County, a certified copy must be filed with the Illinois Department of Labor, and a notice of this resolution must be published in a DuPage county area newspaper.

The 2016 rates are still in effect until the Illinois Department of Labor publishes 2017 rates. The College has elected to adopt the published rate of the Illinois Department of Labor as it would not be cost-effective to conduct an independent study.
