- It is the employer’s obligation to complete the report listing each employee’s social security number and name, hours worked, hours paid and gross wages for the period being reported.
- Hours reported must include all hours for which payment has been made during the period covered by the report. Gross wages will be total compensation paid including overtime.
- Surcharges are specific rates per hours paid for Welfare, S.U.B. and Apprentice funds, and vary according to wage group and Collective Bargaining Agreement. Report the detailed wage group, contract code and appropriate surcharge rates for each employee on the reporting form.
- Duplicates of the reporting form must be carefully preserved by the Employer at his principal place of business and should at all times be available for inspection by duly authorized representatives of the Board of Trustees, or Representatives of Local 542 for report relating to the Union Dues Check-Off.
- Explain any adjustments on separate sheet.
- The report may be signed by:
- the owner, if the firm is a proprietorship;
- a partner, if firm is a partnership;
- the president, treasurer or other principal officer if the employer is a corporation. The signer’s title and the date on which the report is signed must also be shown.
- If you have determined that you have erred and have overreported contributions to the Funds, you may not unilaterally take a credit in subsequent remittances. Refunds or credits for overpayments are authorized only by the Board of Trustees. A letter should be forwarded to the attention of the Collections Manager setting forth the basis of the overpayment and requesting a refund.
