Pennsylvania's New Public Works Employment Verification Act-127

Pennsylvania Enacts Public Works Employment Verification Act 127 On January 1st, Pennsylvania began requiring (via Pennsylvania’s Public Works Employment Verification Act) public works contractors and subcontractors to enroll and participate in the federal E-Verify electronic employment eligibility verification system. The internet-based system confirms the legal works authorization status of newly hired employees by comparing information from the employee’s Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, to data from U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration records.

As part of the act, contractors and subcontractors are required to submit employee verification forms to the municipality, municipal authority or other government contracting body certifying the contractor’s participation in the E-Verify system as a precondition to being awarded a construction contract.

The Department defines a “Public Work” to be construction, reconstruction, demolition, alteration and/or to repair work other than maintenance work, done under contract and paid for in whole or in part out of the funds of a public body where the estimated cost of the total project is in excess of twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000) but shall not include work performed under a rehabilitation or manpower training program.

New meal production facility in Clearfield County will feed over 1,000
Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging
CURWENSVILLE - The Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging just opened the doors to its newly renovated meal production and distribution facility. The relocation of the facility to Curwensville from Clearfield has allowed for the Meals on Wheels program to return a hot meal delivery to the Mahaffey route and add two new routes. The larger facility will not only produce meals for Clearfield County consumers but also for Centre County. "We purchased it because it offered us over 10,000 square feet of space, and the facility at our old site offered us about 3,500," chief executive director of the Area Agency on Aging Kathleen Gillespie said.
