I started work on March 9, 2018 at a State university in California. I was hired by a general contractor who was doing a public works project for the university. I am a welder, making handrails for a baseball stadium. When the job was completed I sent final invoice request on June 25th, 2018. They responded that they are holding my payment because I backed into a light post on the university's grounds. Meanwhile my insurance is already dealing directly with the university to resolve this matter. I think the university maybe withheld the $ from the general contractor's contract, and now the general is withholding from my contract. I am uncertain if they can do this considering I have completed all work in the contract and my insurance is already in the process of reimbursing the university directly for the lightpost damage I caused.
