DAS 142 Requirements

When and why do I have to fill out a DAS 142 / Apprentice Dispatch Request?

Per California Code of Regulations Title 8 Section 230.1 Contractors who are not already employing sufficient registered apprentices (as defined by Labor Code Section 3077) to comply with the one-to-three ratio must request the dispatch of required apprentices from the apprenticeship committees providing training in the applicable craft or trade and whose geographic area of operation includes the site of the public work by giving the committee written notice of at least 72 hours (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and holidays) before the date on which one or more apprentices are required.
