Maryland-based Midasco, LLC agreed to pay $450,000 to settle charges it violated the False Claims Act failing to comply with the Davis-Bacon Act for not paying workers who performed electrical work on the Virginia I-495 HOV/HOT Lanes Project the prevailing wage required by federal labor standards.  The government alleged Midasco instead improperly classified workers as supervisors and paid them a salary in order to avoid paying the higher wages they were entitled to as electricians.  The allegations originated in a whistleblower lawsuit filed under the qui tam provisions of the False Claims Act by David Ridley.  He will receive a yet-to-be-determined whistleblower award from the proceeds of the government’s recovery.  DOJ (EDVA)
