The City retains the right to inspect and audit the records of the Contractor or Sub-Contractor (as referred to in Section 8. Records) at any time during the period of the Construction Contract and at any time thereafter as deemed by the City.

10.1 Upon determining that a Contractor or Sub-Contractor is non-compliant with the Fair Wage Policy and Fair Wage Schedule, the Procurement Manager:

a)    shall advise the Contractor, in writing, that it has been determined that the Contractor or Sub-Contractor is non-compliant and that the Contractor or Sub-Contractor is required to rectify the non-compliance(s) and provide written proof of the same, in a form satisfactory to the City, within ten business days;

and

b)    may withhold making payment, progress payment or release of holdback to the Contractor in an amount which is equal to the shortfall in Wages or Benefits, or may take any other remedies that are otherwise available at law or in equity.

and

c)    shall impose upon the Contractor a minimum cost of $5,000.00 for the City inspection, audit or other action as deemed necessary by the City, and may deduct such costs from any payment or payments (as appropriate) owed by the City to the Contractor, or may take any other remedies that are otherwise available at law or in equity. In addition, the Contractor shall be responsible for all the City’s costs beyond the minimum cost of $5,000.00, which will be payable immediately upon request.

10.2 Where a Contractor or Sub-Contractor has been determined to be non-compliant with the Fair Wage Policy and Fair Wage Schedule for the first time in a five year period, the Procurement Manager may require the Contractor to pay for and submit a licensed Public Accountant assurance report, acceptable to the City, which verifies compliance with the Fair Wage Policy and Fair Wage Schedule on the next three City Construction Contracts to which the Contractor is awarded. Such assurance report shall provide sufficient information and detail to demonstrate compliance with the Fair Wage Policy and Fair Wage Schedule and shall be submitted after substantial performance (as defined in the Construction Lien Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. C.30) of the Construction Contract and prior to the release of the holdback. The City reserves the right to not release part or all of the holdback on a Construction Contract until such assurance report is received and deemed to be satisfactory by the City.
The City reserves the right to treat a first non-compliance as a second or subsequent non-compliance.

10.3 Where a Contractor or Sub-Contractor has been determined to be non-compliant with the Fair Wage Policy and Fair Wage Schedule for a second or subsequent time within a five year period from the date of the first determination of non-compliance by the Procurement Manager. The City, as approved by City Council, may refuse to accept any bid, quotation or proposal from such Contractor or Sub-Contractor on any City contracts, for a period of two years from the date of City Council approval, save and except any Construction Contract the Contractor may currently have with the City.

10.4 If the Contractor or Sub-Contractor fails to keep accurate records, the Contractor or Sub-Contractor will pay a licensed Public Accountant to provide an assurance report, acceptable to the City, which clearly demonstrates compliance with the Fair Wage Policy and Fair Wage Schedule.

11.1 Any person may submit a complaint to the City, alleging non-compliance with the Fair Wage Policy and Fair Wage Schedule, by any Contractor or Sub-Contractor performing construction work on a City Construction Contract. All complaints must be submitted in writing. The Fair Wage Complaint Form may be completed for this purpose.

11.2 The complaint may be initiated at any time during the Construction Contract but shall be received by the City no later than 21 calendar days following substantial performance of the related Construction Contract.

11.3 Upon receipt of a complaint, the Procurement Manager will conduct an initial review of the complaint submitted and advise the initiator of the complaint of the investigation fee and what the likely cost of the investigation will be. The minimum cost of an investigation will be $5,000.00. The City, at its discretion, may waive the cost of an investigation if an Employee is the initiator of the complaint.

11.4 The initiator shall confirm to the City whether or not they would like to proceed with the complaint.

11.5 The City shall take such action as it deems is necessary to determine whether the Contractor or Sub-Contractor involved or named in the complaint is compliant with the Fair Wage Policy and Fair Wage Schedule. Any action deemed necessary by the City shall be responded to within 30 calendar days of receipt of a completed Fair Wage Complaint Form submitted to the Procurement Manager.

11.6 The Procurement Manager shall inform the initiator and any Contractor or Sub-Contractor involved or named in the complaint, of the City’s determination of the Contractor's or Sub-Contractor's compliance or non-compliance with the Fair Wage Policy and Fair Wage Schedule.

11.7 Whenever a complaint is initiated by a person other than an individual Employee of the Contractor or Sub-Contractor involved or named in the complaint, and said Contractor or Sub-Contractor is found to be compliant with the Fair Wage Policy and Fair Wage Schedule, with respect to the complaint, the costs associated with the inspections, audits or other action deemed necessary regarding the investigation of the complaint will be borne solely by the initiator.

11.8 The City shall make every effort to safeguard the confidentiality of each initiator’s identity. However, this information is subject to the provisions of the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. M.56. For greater certainty and direction regarding how such issues of confidentiality will be handled and may affect an initiator’s rights, the initiator should reference the City’s policies related to Freedom of Information on the City’s website under the Office of the City Clerk at hamilton.ca.


12.1 The City recognizes that mistakes and misunderstandings may occur; Contractors, Sub-Contractors or complainants may feel aggrieved and may seek to dispute the outcome of a Fair Wage complaint process. If anyone wishes to appeal the outcome of a Fair Wage complaint, they shall write to the Procurement Manager within five business days of being notified of the Fair Wage complaint outcome and provide a detailed statement outlining the grounds of the appeal and request a meeting with the Procurement Manager.

12.2 If no resolution satisfactory to both parties has been achieved, the Contractor, Sub-Contractor or complainant will have three business days from the date of the meeting with the Procurement Manager to make a formal written request with the Procurement Manager to meet with the General Manager of the Client Department issuing the Construction Contract and the General Manager of Finance and Corporate Services regarding their complaint. The General Managers will make the final decision regarding the outcome of the Fair Wage complaint process.
