Prevailing Wage

Denver’s Prevailing Wage Ordinance (§20-76) requires payment of the prevailing wage on contracts with the City, and is enforced by the Auditor’s Office.

Contractors and subcontractors doing work at or in connection with the operation of any public building or public work on behalf of the City and County of Denver must pay their workers prevailing wage. Prevailing wage is required on  contracts of $2,000 or more for construction, improvement, repair, maintenance, demolition, or janitorial work. 


A worker receives a check for underpaid wages after Prevailing Wage investigation.
