Subtrades have historically been forced to choose between waiting longer for payment than the subcontract calls for, and having to agree to pay-when-paid provisions, or expending pursuit costs in order to be paid what they are entitled to. This session will address issues relating to prompt payment, adjudication, and lien provisions of the Construction Act, as they relate to subtrades, GCs, and owners, including:
