Subcontract agreements often include contractual provisions that seek to impose additional fines or penalties for safety violations. MCAA’s Enforceability of Contractual Fines/Penalties for Subcontractor Safety Violations explains how those provisions could impact a subcontractor and how best to avoid them. It’s just one of MCAA’s educational resources that are free to MCAA members as a benefit of membership.
The items covered include:
- Why mechanical contractors should be aware of these provisions
- What to do in the event such a provision is included in a subcontract
- The law
- Liquidated damages
- Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) states
- UCC states with added protections
- Non-UCC states
- Indemnity clauses
