On September 17, 2010, the MHDC Board of Commissioners
adopted a new Workforce Eligibility Policy that replaces any
and all previously existing policies. The new policy is
effective immediately and applies to all developments,
including future developments, developments that have
already been approved, developments that have not yet begun
construction, and developments that have begun construction
but are not yet complete. All provisions of previous
policies that are not included in the new policy will no
longer be required.
A file containing copies of the new policy, handbook,
contract language, and affidavit is below. Please review
these materials carefully. Please note that the only
documentation that will be submitted to MHDC will be the
affidavit and proof of using E-Verify. No other
documentation will be submitted to MHDC. However, any
company that has already submitted an affidavit will not be
required to resubmit a new affidavit on the revised form.
Please also note that all persons performing labor are
required to complete OSHA construction safety training.
Persons who have previously completed the training will not
be required to complete the training again, but must be able
to produce proof of prior completion. Each person must
complete OSHA construction safety training within sixty (60)
days of commencing work.
Any 1% escrow funds held pursuant to previous workforce
eligibility policies will be released within sixty (60) days
On-site inspections will continue. Inspectors will approach
persons performing labor on site and will request the
personís name and employer, and will request that the person
produce proof of completion of OSHA construction safety
