Beginning this January, New York general contractors will be subject to new legislation that imposes joint liability for unpaid wages owed to employees of their subcontractors. The law impacts any construction contracts entered, renewed, modified, or amended on or after January 4, 2022. Ultimately, if subcontractors cannot—or do not—pay their employees, general contractors will be liable for such nonpayment of wages, benefits, wage supplements and other remedies. This program will discuss the key provisions of the new legislation, highlighting where general contractors are most at risk for legal exposure. We’ll also discuss procedural safeguards included in the law that general contractors should consider incorporating in future contracts to help protect them.
Key topics to be discussed:
- An overview of the key provisions of newly enacted A.3350-A/S.2766-C, which imposes joint liability on general contractors in New York for unpaid wages owed to employees of their subcontractors
- A review of where New York general contractors are most at risk for legal exposure under the new law
- What to look for, and what risks to consider, in reviewing contracts and relationships with current subcontractors
- Procedural safeguards that general contractors should consider incorporating in future contracts to help protect them from wage and hour violations
