Workplace injuries are more common in the construction industry than any other industry. But too often the general contractor is forced to accept responsibility for claims from injured subcontractor workers.
In 2018, California’s Supreme Court ruled on Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court of Los Angeles County. Their ruling has now made it more difficult for businesses to classify workers as independent contractors.
A successful construction project requires many things such as acquiring building materials acquisition, complying with building codes and regulations, and meeting deadlines. In addition, vendors and sub-contractors have to be paid, as well as employees.
