Presented by Western Council of Construction Consumers:
Advanced Payment Issues Training for Owners & Contractors
Everything Owners & Contractors Need to Know about the Public Works Payment Process
Thursday, May 26, 2016
Owners and Contractors often find themselves in trouble, because they do not fully understand their rights and duties triggered when a payment is due. Learn how to maneuver the legal minefield to make sure you are treated fairly when you make OR demand payments.
Learn all of the ways Contractors can force prompt payments from public owners, and how their payments can substantially increase in value if prompt payments are not made.
Owners will learn the consequences of late payments and how to avoid them; as well as how to “drill down” to determine what is actually due to a Contractor, despite what the bill might say.
See how the latest cases in California courts affect the payment process. This program includes legal issues relating to Prompt Payment Act, False Claims, and Mechanics Liens and Stop Notices.
LEARN ESSENTIAL RULES, TIPS AND PROCESS GUIDELINES concerning progress payments, ex-tra work payments, or change order payments, and the tools governing their enforcement.
