Verkada Partner Reliant Not Paid For NJ School Install, No Certified Payroll Submitted

By Isabella Cheng and Donald Maye, Published Jun 27, 2022, 09:27am EDT (Info+)

More than 8 months after a 300+ Verkada camera installation was completed, the NJ school has refused to pay for the installation labor, confirming to IPVM that the partner (Reliant IT - previously covered in Man Convicted for $11 Million Fraud) has not submitted the required certified payroll.

Certified payroll is required to prove that contractor employees (i.e., security installers) are paid the legally required prevailing wage.

In this note, we examine the school's response (including FOIA'ed communication from the school about Verkada equipment), the role of certified payrolls, and the advantages or disadvantages of not paying certified payroll.
