I recently signed onto a project, and my subcontract has a pay-if-paid clause. Is there any way to object or challenge the clause if payment becomes an issue? Any suggestions on how to protect my company if the GC never gets paid?...Read More

I have a subcontractor requesting payment for their performance bond. The project is for DOT, just this week we completed precon meeting and finalized a start date. No work has been done to date. We normally pay our subs once work has been completed, we have been paid then we pay our subs. Do we need to pay the bond before work has started, or tell them we will pay them once we are paid by the client?...Read More

I supplied and installed materials on a commercial project. The GC withheld major portions of monthly payments or didn't pay at all. I was unable to pay my workers and vendors. Then the GC excessively back charged my contract for work I could or would not perform due to an unachievable expidited schedule due to the GC poor coordination and management. The GC demanded that I put a large unsatiable work force to meet the expidited schedule with the promise of payment then didn't pay. The GC said that the owner was slow in payment. How do I fight the excessive back charges and collect monies due to my workers, vendors and collect for outstanding extras and change orders?...Read More

I’m a subcontractor that did some work at a liquor store. The company i got the work through is refusing to pay and I have talked with the liquor store and they have paid the full invoice already. I paid for all materials and both me and the general supplied labor. I have $15,000 in just coat wrapped into this project and have not received a penny. We are supposed to be splitting profits 50/50 and the more I ask for money the more the general says essentially there are no profits but is still refusing to pay my costs. Total invoice for the job was in excess of $40,000 and from my records I believe I am owed $24,000. I did serve the liquor store owner with a pre lein notice at the beginning but haven’t served a intent letter yet....Read More

We completed a home renovation where the contractor walked off the job, filed a lien against us, and then filed a lawsuit. An attorney friend recommending settling to avoid the cost of court/arbitration. After the settlement was signed we learned that the contractor (and his attorney) were intentionally holding back payments to the HVAC subcontractor and tile/flooring subcontractor. The HVAC contractor contacted us directly and specifically stated the contractor and attorney are not responding to him. The tile/flooring contractor actually sued the GC after we settled. The problem is, these amounts were never disclosed to our attorney or to our bank via the Affidavits per payment. It would have changed our mind about suing since we could prove fraud. I'm not sure if the contractor can claim this is a dispute between him and the subs and therefore isn't required to be disclosed to the bank. I believe (I'm an foresnic accountant/CPA) it's fraud since they filed a lien and lawsuit based on false/represented amounts. I'm on the fence of reporting to the police and/or suing for fraud in obtaining a settlement. ...Read More

I am curious about overtime pay. Say we work five, 10 hr days. We get paid overtime past 8hrs a day. So would we be paid overtime for the full 10 hrs worked Friday being as we would be at 40 total hrs at the end of Thursday? With a total of 18 hrs over time pay and 32 hrs regular? (32 hrs regular mon-thurs + 8 hrs over time( 2hrs per day) = 40 hrs by end of day Thursday. Friday 10 hrs all over time?)...Read More
