(A) No contractor or subcontractor under a contract for a public improvement or public work shall sublet any of the work covered by such contract unless specifically authorized to do so by the contract. If a contractor or subcontractor sublets a contract, it shall notify the public authority at the time the contract is sublet.

Each contract for a public improvement or public work shall contain a provision that all employees shall be paid not less than the applicable prevailing wage.
(B) Every contract for a public improvement project shall contain provisions requiring the successful bidder to be responsible for the payment of the prevailing wages to each individual who worked on the project.
