Quality Roofing, INC., Order to Pay $75,000 Fine, Restitution

 

ROCHESTER, N.Y.-- U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr., announced today that Quality Roofing, Inc., a Michigan-based corporation convicted of submitting false forms to the government, was sentenced to pay of fine of $75,000, plus restitution of $19,197.50 by U.S. District Judge Charles J. Siragusa.

            Assistant U.S. Attorney John J. Field, who handled the case, stated that the defendant was a subcontractor on a government roofing project at the Kenneth B. Keating Federal Building in 2007-2008. The corporation was required to pay its employees the prevailing wage, as established by the Secretary of Labor, and to submit weekly certified payrolls confirming this fact. The defendant did not pay its employees the prevailing wage, but falsely claimed in its certified payrolls that it had done so.

The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation on the part of Special Agents of the General Services Administration, under the direction of James E. Adams, and the Department of Labor, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Robert L. Panella.
