1727.  (a) Before making payments to the contractor of money due
under a contract for public work, the awarding body shall withhold
and retain therefrom all amounts required to satisfy any civil wage
and penalty assessment issued by the Labor Commissioner under this
chapter. The amounts required to satisfy a civil wage and penalty
assessment shall not be disbursed by the awarding body until receipt
of a final order that is no longer subject to judicial review.
   (b) If the awarding body has not retained sufficient money under
the contract to satisfy a civil wage and penalty assessment based on
a subcontractor's violations, the contractor shall, upon the request
of the Labor Commissioner, withhold sufficient money due the
subcontractor under the contract to satisfy the assessment and
transfer the money to the awarding body. These amounts shall not be
disbursed by the awarding body until receipt of a final order that is
no longer subject to judicial review.
