NEW L&I CERTIFIED PAYROLL REPORTING REQUIREMENTS: In 2019, the Washington State Legislature approved changes to the Prevailing Wage law (RCW 39.12). One of these changes is a requirement for all contractors to submit certified payrolls at least once a month directly to L&I's portal. The effective date for these changes is January 1, 2020 and applies to ongoing and future contracts.

* The City will continue requiring certified payroll submittal via LCPtracker.

* LCPtracker will provide a solution for contractors to download certified payroll information in a format accepted by L&I which then can be uploaded directly to L&I's portal. Alternatively, contractors will be able to enter certified payroll information directly to L&I’s webpage:

* A link to instructions for this new process will be on this page as soon as it becomes available.
