A responsible contractor, as used in this policy, is a contractor or subcontractor who pays workers a "fair wage" and a "fair benefit" as evidenced by payroll and employee records. Fair benefits are defined as including, but are not limited to, employer-paid family health care coverage, pension benefits and apprenticeship programs. What constitutes a fair wage and fair benefit depends on the wages and benefits paid on comparable investment projects, based on local market factors, that include the nature of the project (for example, residential or commercial, public or private), comparable job or trade classifications and the scope and complexity of services provided.
