Ridgewood NJ, NJDOL’s Division of Wage and Hour and Contract Compliance has the authority to immediately halt work at any public or private worksite – both construction and non-construction – when an investigation finds evidence an employer has violated state wage, benefit or tax laws. Examples include: misclassifying employees as independent contractors; not having appropriate workers’ compensation insurance; failing to pay prevailing wage or overtime; or paying workers partially, late, or off the books.

Stop-work order investigations have resulted in the assessment of nearly $3 million in administrative fees and penalties across all employers involved.

Of the 110 stop-work orders issued since 2019, 87 involved construction jobs, with 44 being public works projects. Stop-work order investigations have so far led to 11 contractors being debarred from engaging in future public works jobs.

In addition to responding to worker complaints, NJDOL last year added Strategic Enforcement to its toolbox, focusing on industries with a history of non-compliance and whose employees are less likely to file complaints. The department has increased outreach efforts to connect with workers and employers as part of its Strategic Enforcement initiatives. A recent Strategic Enforcement effort concentrating on the drywall industry resulted in the issuance of 10 stop-work orders at one Raritan construction site.

Below is a list of the number of stop-work orders issued  in Bergen county:

Reliant IT: East Rutherford (2)
Zenith Construction: Mahwah
Gorilla Netting, LLC: Mahwah
Premier Building & Construction Management: Paramus
Little Purse, LLC t/a Shumi Japanese Restaurant: Ridgewood
Urban City Creations, LLC: Ridgewood
