On January 10, 2012, a bill was introduced (A1420) that would require contractors and subcontractors engaged in any public works contract subject to prevailing wage requirements to keep wage records not only showing the name, craft or trade, and the actual hourly rate of wages paid to each worker employed by the contractor under the contract, but also to include the address of the worker and the actual daily, overtime and weekly hours for each worker under the contract and to provide the public body awarding the contract with these records.

The bill also would require the public body to make these wage records available to the NJDOL, certain interested parties, and any labor organization representing workers in a craft or trade employed in the work.
