Construction disputes involving wages

Whether you are a small contractor or run a large construction firm, there are countless reasons why a dispute may surface. However, some disputes, such as those which involve those who work for your company, can be especially difficult to deal with. Construction disputes which involve employees or sub-contractors may arise over any number of issues, but many involve wages. A worker may claim that they were not paid for overtime, that they were not compensated in accordance with their contract or that they were not paid at all. It is crucial to handle these claims appropriately, since they may lead to further action (such as litigation) if they are not resolved.

What should I look out for when hiring a contractor?

When having work performed on your Los Angeles home, you must choose a contractor wisely. Making the wrong choice can cost you money as well as time. It can also lead to an extended legal dispute if contractual obligations are not met. Fortunately, being choosey about a contractor can prevent these occurrences from happening. Reader's Digest recommends looking out for the following red flags when selecting a contractor.
