What is the Center for Contract Compliance?

About Us

The Center for Contract Compliance (CCC) is a non-profit organization that was created in response to the concerns of contractors and labor with the unlawful disregard for the laws governing public works.

The CCC was founded by the Southern California District Council of Laborers and its affiliated local unions in conjunction with the following contractor associations:

  • Associated General Contractors of California (AGC)
  • Building Industry Association of Southern California (BIA)
  • Engineering Contractors’ Association (ECA)
  • Southern California Contractors Association (SCCA)

The CCC advocates compliance with prevailing wage, labor and public contract bidding laws to establish a level playing field for contractors competing for public works contracts, guarantee workers are properly compensated, and facilitate quality construction for public agencies. These laws and regulations include:

  • Labor Code
  • Public Contract Code
  • Contractors’ State License Law
  • Apprenticeship Standards
  • Code of Federal Regulations
  • California Code of Regulations
  • Cal/OSHA Standards
  • Davis-Bacon Act

Our investigators, many with bilingual abilities, investigate and monitor public work projects and contractors to ensure that these laws and regulations are followed. The CCC also works closely with the agencies entrusted with enforcement of these laws and regulations. These agencies include:

  • The District Attorneys’ offices of:
    • Orange County
    • Riverside County
    • San Diego County
    • Santa Barbara County
    • Los Angeles County
  • Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE)
  • Department of Labor (DOL) (wage and hour division)
  • Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA)
  • Employment Development Department (EDD)
  • California Franchise Tax Board (FTB)
  • California Department of Insurance (DOI)
  • Contractors State License Board (CSLB)
  • Local awarding bodies
