Labor Standards

Labor Monitoring Unit

The Labor Monitoring Unit (“LMU”) is responsible for the management of an effective labor compliance and enforcement program that ensures adherence to all applicable Federal, State and City labor requirements and is transparent to owners, contractors and workers who partner with the Agency to build affordable housing throughout the City. 

Labor Monitoring And Compliance (“LMAC”) Service

LMU now offers contractors engaged in Agency development projects the use of the Labor Monitoring And Compliance (“LMAC”) service, a secure, internet-based application for the upload, review and storage of certified payrolls and associated documents. LMAC greatly reduces the cost, time and resources needed to comply with Davis Bacon, Section 220 and Section 230 prevailing wage requirements. The Service also tracks Section 3 and MWBE participation.  

General Contractors and subcontractors will be able to upload payroll data directly from a payroll software program or from a spreadsheet. Payroll data will be immediately checked against the applicable Davis Bacon wage determination schedule. Although the use of the service is not mandated by HPD, LMAC will save your firm a significant amount of staff-time and money. And the service is free.
