Venue: WebinarREGISTER/SPONSOR Free
General Contractors – learn how to protect yourself from AB 1701 – This bill applies to PRIVATE projects entered into on or after 1/1/18 and makes the Prime Contractor or GC liable for non-payment of wages and/or benefits to employees of subcontractors and lower tier subs for all labor performed on PRIVATE projects.
With AB 1701 California told contractors that as a matter of law a direct contractor may be responsible for a subcontractor’s failure to properly pay wages or fringe benefits. A new right of action was created enabling lawsuits. New questions and pressures emerged requiring disclosure of information between contractors and, perhaps, as a condition of getting work. New standards of compliance and due diligence are critical to avoid risk and ensure success. This session will help to provide a basic understanding of AB 1701’s requirements and steps contractors should consider in their business relationships to improve business relationships and minimize risks.
