New AB3018 Legislation

Understanding the ever-changing Skilled and Trained legislation can be overwhelming for all parties involved, and ensuring compliance can be extremely difficult. Let Gafcon help!

Contractors at all tiers are required to have a certain percentage of their journeymen be graduates of state-approved apprenticeship programs. Therefore, it is imperative to closely monitor the prime contractor on your project, and all subcontractors as well.

The newest proposed legislation, AB 3018 imposes various penalties on contractors including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Monthly civil penalties, up to $10,000
  • Withholding 150% of the value of monthly billing
  • Debarment

These new penalties are not only enforceable on future contracts, but (the jury is still out) may affect those entered into before January 1, 2019.

Gafcon has experience designing, implementing, and enforcing Skilled and Trained Programs throughout the state, and we can help you avoid any pitfalls on your upcoming projects.

If you have any questions about the new legislation, please reach out to Alicia Bliler, J.D., Labor Relations Project Manager at
