As we wrote earlier, legislation signed into law this past year, SB 854, now requires that public works contractors and subcontractors register through the California Department of Industrial Relations (“DIR”) in order to bid on and enter into public works contracts on state and local public works projects.
In a not so well publicized event I just learned of today (but, then again, I’m always the last one to get invited to parties) the DIR is hosting a seminar in Los Angeles on the new requirements:
Date: Monday, April 6, 2015
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Where: Junipero Serra State Building, 320 W. 4th Street, 1st Floor, Carmel Room, Los Angeles, CA 90013.
Hurry though, seating is limited.
According to the DIR website, “[d]ue to limited seating,” attendees are directed to RSVP by emailing Claudia Canas at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 25th.
