Owners of New York based construction businesses are more likely to be mindful of construction law issues relating to contract performance and defective work. Many however are unaware they are also under increasing risks of liability in compliance with newly enacted requirements under New York Employment and Labor Laws.
Without awareness of these new trends, business owners are unable to take steps in advance to prepare for such new regulations and take pro active steps to be in compliance.
To share awareness of these new trends, the Nassau County Bar Association has published my article examining these issues ‘Employment and Labor Compliance Challenges for Construction Contractors’ in their January 2017 edition of the Nassau Lawyer.
Owners of New York construction businesses are encouraged to familioarize themselves with these liability risks and consider if they are in compliance with these regulations before any claims filed.
