DEPARTMENT OF INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS (INDUSTRIAL WELFARE COMMISSION) WAGE ORDER 16 Q&A
Industrial Welfare Commission orders can be found at: http://www.dir.ca.gov/IWC/wageorderindustries.htm
Wage order 16 relates to the construction industry. Here are some more specific Q&As that relate to travel pay on public works projects:
Q: On travel between public works projects, is the worker entitled to prevailing wage? If so, would it be payable at the workers' last classification/rate of pay?
A: Yes, prevailing rate based upon worker's classification.
Q: On travel from a private job to a public works project, is the worker entitled to prevailing wage? If so, would it be payable at the worker's last classification? If not, what rate would apply?
A: No. The worker should be paid their regular (non-prevailing wage) rate of pay for travel between a public works project and a private job.
Q: On travel from a public works project to a private job, is the worker entitled to the prevailing wage? If so, would it be payable at the worker's last classification? If not, what rate would apply?
A: Same as above.
Q: On travel from a public works project to the contractor's shop/yard, is the worker entitled to prevailing wage? If so, would it be payable at the worker's last classification/rate of pay? If not, what rate would apply?
A: Prevailing rate based on worker's classification.
IWC order 16 applies to all on-site construction, including public works, but is superceded by the prevailing wage provisions found at Labor Code 1811-11815, if those provisions are more favorable to the worker. The rate required under Order 16 for travel is the "regular rate," which would be (1) the prevailing rate, if the worker is employed in the execution of public works or (2) the rate the worker is being paid on the private construction site, unless the employer as pre-set a rate for travel (not less than minimum wage), i.e., "travel rate." Also, Order 16 is the only IWC ORder which applies the minimum wage provisions to apprentices.
