The law about contractor responsibility

How the law affects you

The law about contractor responsibility means that a worker in the construction industry who does not receive a salary can have the salary paid by the company that hired the worker’s employer. If the employer does not pay the wages, the employee has the option of turning to the contractor higher up the chain. If that contractor is unable to pay, responsibility for payment of the wages passes to the main contractor.

You can avoid the risk of subcontractors’ wage debts by using an effective staffing solution.

By bringing in a staffing solution similar to a subcontracting solution with the delivery of complete teams, you avoid unnecessary risks and you get a subcontractor who doesn’t cheat on taxes, ignore security, or pay the right wages to their workers.
