Certified Payroll Form
Certified payroll information must be submitted each payroll period by those companies required to pay State of Maine Prevailing Wage. Covered contractors and subcontractors performing work on state funded projects must furnish a statement with respect to the wages paid each employee during the preceding pay period. Contractors must submit a copy of all payrolls to the general contractor and the Maine State letting agency, accompanied by a signed "Statement of Compliance" indicating that the payrolls are correct and complete proving each laborer or mechanic has been paid not less than the proper Prevailing Wage rate for the work performed.
The proper completion and submission of the Certified Payroll Form meets that requirement. The Bureau of Labor Standards reviews the information to determine that employees have received legally required wages and fringe benefits.
If you have questions about the form, please call the Bureau of Labor Standards at (207) 623-7900.
