(1) When the Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries, in accordance with the provisions of ORS chapter 183, determines that a contractor or subcontractor has intentionally failed or refused to pay the prevailing rate of wage to workers employed upon public works, a subcontractor has failed to pay to its employees amounts required by ORS 279C.840 and the contractor has paid those amounts on the subcontractor’s behalf, or a contractor or subcontractor has intentionally failed or refused to post the prevailing rates of wage as required by ORS 279C.840 (4), the contractor, subcontractor or any firm, corporation, partnership or association in which the contractor or subcontractor has a financial interest shall be ineligible, for a period not to exceed three years from the date of publication of the name of the contractor or subcontractor on the ineligible list as provided in this section, to receive any contract or subcontract for public works. The commissioner shall maintain a written list of the names of those contractors and subcontractors determined to be ineligible under this section and the period of time for which they are ineligible. A copy of the list shall be published, furnished upon request and made available to contracting agencies.
(2) When the contractor or subcontractor is a corporation, the provisions of subsection (1) of this section apply to any corporate officer or corporate agent who is responsible for the failure or refusal to pay or post the prevailing rate of wage or the failure to pay to a subcontractor’s employees amounts required by ORS 279C.840 that are paid by the contractor on the subcontractor’s behalf.
(3) For good cause shown, the commissioner may direct the removal of the name of a contractor or subcontractor from the ineligible list.
(4) To assist the commissioner in determining whether the contractor or subcontractor is paying the prevailing rate of wage, when a prevailing rate of wage claim is filed, or evidence indicating a violation has occurred, a contractor or subcontractor required to pay the prevailing rate of wage to workers employed upon public works under ORS 279C.800 to 279C.870 shall send a certified copy of the payroll for those workers when the commissioner requests the certified copy.
