DIR Will Resume Enforcement on August 1 of the Requirement to Submit Certified Payroll Records Online

The Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) is advising Public Works contractors and subcontractors that enforcement of the requirement to submit certified payroll records using DIR’s online system will resume on August 1.

The requirement to keep certified payroll reports (CPRs) has not changed and the electronic certified payroll reporting system is fully operational. The enhancements to DIR’s online system, available as of August 1, 2016, consist of a simplified online filing form. The requirements for uploading payroll records via XML remain unchanged. New User Guides and video tutorials with detailed instructions will accompany the release of the enhanced system.

DIR has additional compliance information on its Public Works page. The public works community is also invited to subscribe to email alerts on public works topics, DIR’s press releases and other departmental updates.

DIR protects and improves the health, safety and economic well-being of over 18 million wage earners, and helps their employers comply with state labor laws.

DIR’s Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE), also known as the Labor Commissioner’s Office, enforces prevailing wage rates and apprenticeship standards in public works projects, inspects workplaces for wage and hour violations, adjudicates wage claims, investigates retaliation complaints, issues licenses and registrations for businesses and educates the public about labor laws.
