At its core, the New York Foundation for Fair Contracting exists to protect worker rights. Unscrupulous contractors try to skirt the law by not paying workers the prevailing wage. Others misclassify workers to pay them a lower rate, or do not pay them the appropriate overtime rate for additional hours accrued. If these workers speak up, they risk being fired.
NYFFC can help workers pursue confidential grievances regarding their employment. This information is then passed along to the proper state agencies to investigate the complaint and ensure that workplace labor and safety laws are followed, including but not limited to fringe benefit credits, prevailing wage rates, and more.
