55:14K-42. Wage rate of workmen employed by qualified housing sponsors; determination
Each qualified housing sponsor granted a loan from the agency, or any builder, contractor or subcontractor engaged by the qualified housing sponsor for the construction or rehabilitation of any housing project, shall pay the workmen employed in the performance of any contract for such construction or rehabilitation not less than the prevailing wage rate. The prevailing wage rate shall be determined by the Commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Labor in all cases, except that the prevailing rate shall be determined by the Secretary of the United States Department of Labor in accordance with the Davis-Bacon Act as amended (40 U.S.C. 276a to 276a-5), when the loan from the agency for the construction or rehabilitation of a housing project or the tenants of the housing project is the subject of direct or indirect federal assistance other than the federal tax exemption of the interest paid on the agency obligations.
The Commissioner of Labor is authorized to, and shall, determine the prevailing wage rate and shall establish the prevailing wage in the locality in which the construction or rehabilitation of any housing project is to be performed for each craft or trade or classification of all workmen employed in the performance of such construction or rehabilitation, as if such construction or rehabilitation were "public work" within the meaning of P. L. 1963, c. 150 (34:11-56.25 et seq.). For the purpose of carrying out the provisions of this section, the Commissioner of Labor and any workmen employed in the performance of any contract for the construction or rehabilitation of any housing project, shall have and may exercise or perform any right, power or duty granted or imposed upon them by P.L.1963, c. 150.
