STAND. COM. REP. NO. 21
RE: H.B. No. 391
Honorable Joseph M. Souki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-Eighth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2015
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Labor & Public Employment, to which was referred H.B. No. 391 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO WAGES AND HOURS ON PUBLIC WORKS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to amend Hawaii's prevailing wage law to allow for payment of overtime on public works projects to exceed time and a half by establishing that overtime and premium rates for workers on a public work project shall be at rates established in a collective bargaining agreement, if any, for the applicable employee group used for determining overtime compensation on the public work project.
The Department of Labor and Industrial Relations and Hawaii Construction Alliance testified in support of this measure. The General Contractors Association of Hawaii provided comments on this measure.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Labor & Public Employment that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 391 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to the Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Labor & Public Employment,
MARK M. NAKASHIMA, Chair
