The California Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) is advising Public Works contractors and
subcontractors that enforcement of the requirement to submit certified payroll records
using DIR’s online system will resume on August 1.
The requirement to keep certified payroll reports (CPRs) has not changed and the
electronic certified payroll reporting system is fully operational. The enhancements to
DIR’s online system, available as of August 1, 2016, consist of a simplified online filing
form. The requirements for uploading payroll records via XML remain unchanged. New
User Guides and video tutorials with detailed instructions will accompany the release of
the enhanced system.
