The Public Works Contractor Registration Act (NJSA 34:11-56.48 et seq.) requires all contractors, subcontractors, or lower tier subcontractors (including subcontractors listed in bid proposal) who bid on or engage in the performance of any public work in New Jersey to register with the NJ Department of Labor and Workforce Development.


If a contractor bids on or is found working on a public works project without being registered, the maximum penalty for a first violation is $2500. 


Includes New Jersey state fees.
