Attention: August 2018 Prevailing Wage Law Updates

Legislation (HB 1729) passed by the Missouri General Assembly and signed by the Governor becomes effective August 28, 2018. This new law makes several changes to Missouri's prevailing wage system. Missouri's Prevailing Wage Law establishes a minimum wage rate for public works projects in Missouri valued over $75,000. This law applies to all public works projects constructed by or on behalf of state and local public bodies.

The rates must be incorporated into contract specifications for all public works jobs. This is the minimum wage rate required for the project. Employees are free to bargain for a higher rate of pay. Employers are free to pay a higher rate of pay. The prevailing wage rate differs by county and for different types of work.
