DIR - Apprentice Hiring Exemptions

They are:

 - Labor Code 1777.5 does not apply to general contractors whose contract is under $30,000.
 - When the craft or trade is not apprenticeable.
 - When the project is a federal project and the funding of the project does not contain any city, county, and/or state monies unless the project is administered by a state agency in which case the apprenticeship requirements apply.
 - When the project is a private project not covered by the definition of public works as found in Labor Code section 1720.

What if I am exempt from the apprenticeship requirements of California Labor Code Section 1777.5 as my situation falls under one of the exemptions listed above. Do I still have to provide a "Notice of Contract Award" (DAS 140 form) to the applicable program?

You do not have to submit a "Notice of Contract Award". However, for purposes of letting the applicable program know of your exemption, you may, nevertheless, want to provide the form to the applicable program so they are aware of your exemption.
