The DOL is actively working to update and modernize America’s overtime pay system, an effort highlighted earlier this year by President Obama’s Directive Expanding Overtime Pay. PJD is a top-paying industry piecework contractor in Arizona, typically exceeding prevailing wage in all categories, and initiated this effort with the DOL to review its policies, and assist with establishing industry best-practices.
“We pride ourselves on having the most professional crews in the state, and welcomed the opportunity to evaluate employment practices with the DOL,” said Cole Johnson, president of PJD. “Our crews allow us to deliver clients unparalleled on-time delivery in the safest manner, and as a result of these high expectations, we consistently pay our crews the highest wages. We’re excited to be taking our business, as well as our trade and related industry, to the next level,” he added.
In 2014, PJD expects significant growth over 2013. The reclassification and related program actions position the company to accommodate its expanding business, while simultaneously providing clients with the assurances associated with W-2 employee classification.
