Construction workerQuick fun fact of the day – I recently learned that the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s OCIC – Labor Compliance Unit has resources to assist it to find compliance violations (employee misclassifications).  Apparently, MNDOT’s CRL (Civil Rights and Labor) payroll system flags key words from inspector’s field notes and searches for the proper classification in the CRL system.  For example, if the inspector enters in “dismantle commercial sign” any time in the week, the CRL system should have a “Sign Erector” classification for that week.  If not, the system will flag the District Office Manager before that certified payroll report can be approved.  Who knew?
