Responsible Wages & Benefits

Miami-Dade County's Responsible Wages and Benefits for Construction Contracts
The Board of County Commissioners established a Responsible Wages and Benefits requirement for minimum payment of specified wages to employees performing work on County construction contracts and privately funded construction on County owned land.  Responsible Wages and Benefits applies to competitively bid construction contracts valued greater than $100,000 as defined in the provisions of Miami-Dade County’s Section 2-11.16 of the Code of Miami-Dade County. The rates paid shall be not less than those contained in the Wage and Benefits Schedule in effect as of January 1st of the year the work is performed.  Workers must be paid the appropriate base rate and fringe benefits on the Wages and Benefits Schedule for the classification of work actually being performed without regard to skill. If you do not find a wage classification in the Wages and Benefits Schedule that describes the work actually being done, you must contact the Small Business Development for a determination.


Small Business Development, a Division of the Internal Services Department, is responsible for the implementation and enforcement of the Responsible Wages and Benefits. Enforcement at the Aviation facilities is performed by the Minority Affairs Division of the Miami-Dade Aviation Department. For assistance or to file a complaint of underpayment please contact Small Business Development at 305-375-3111 or Minority Affairs at 305-876-7784.
