Benjamin Franklin once said: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.
This workshop will discuss the trade contractor’s contractual responsibilities and draw attention to clauses that often appear in construction contracts or subcontracts that may affect the rights and obligations of trade contractors.
Using the CCA 53 – A Trade Contractor’s Guide and Checklist to Construction Contracts you will review and analyze actual subcontract clauses to identify what to look for when reviewing and attempting to understand the construction contracts you are asked to bid upon and sign. After taking this course, you’ll be better prepared to protect yourself and your business from potentially harmful clauses in construction contracts.
