Can I file a lien for unpaid salary while working for the general contractor?
I’m the project manager for the general contractor on an ongoing project (still in construction). For a few months time (3 months) my employer (the general contractor) and I had an agreement that I would receive my normal agreed salary for those months at a deferred time towards the end of the project. We even documented it as a “deferral election” on my pay stubs. We eventually got back on track with the normal salary being paid, but I have still not been paid for the months worked previously. In the mean time, my employer is going bankrupt and the owner is slowly taking over the general contract duties and payments to suppliers and subs. Do I have lien rights for the time I deferred my salary? I’m still working on the project but thinking that I need to take action to get paid directly from the owner.
