I am a carpenter (sub contractor) who has been working for a GC in Texas. We (crew members), are frequently treated as employees, i.e. told when-what-where we are working and what jobs we are performing. We don’t sign any contracts for work to be performed or what the timeline is, contrary to a “normal” sub contractor to contractor agreement. The owner (GC) makes these decisions and contractual agreements with the client. We are however required to turn in a weekly invoice with our names (as our own company) and hours worked on said project. I have been working on an assigned project for a couple months that went over budget for a multitude of reasons. In good faith I turned in less hours than actually worked to keep budget in mind, and spent money on my personal debit card for materials to perform the task. I have detailed receipts. I have been using my own residence/electricity, etc. to work on said project. Once the project went over budget the GC informed me he would not only not pay me hours worked, but would not refund my detailed receipts showing they were all solely for the job and not personal expenses. I’ve informed the owner of the company (GC) I am not after anything but pay for my time and personal expenses. I don’t want this to effect the homeowner, just want to be compensated and move on with my life. I notified him of my last invoice on 9/11/19 as was told the next day he would send to his lawyer and hit me with a lien, which I’ve yet to see. I’ve spent almost two weeks from initial dispute stressed, confused, and countless hours on how to proceed. Please help.
