All too often in our industry, electrical contractors are struggling to get paid for their completed work. The updated Construction Contracts Act 2004 (the CCA) provides contractors with a quick and low-cost means of dispute resolution, for written or oral contracts, without having to go to court. The Act allows for the appointment of an independent adjudicator and sets strict time limits on the process so decisions get made quickly and payment is not held up.
“Good eye opener to understand the risk of contracts and possible dangers associated with signing without reading the contract adequately.”
“I thought it would be too hard to claim for the money we were owed but this process is fairly straightforward. Thanks for your help.”
“Excellent seminars, security of payment is a major KPI for our team.”
Any staff who are involved in the contract process – including project managers, contract administrators, programmers, supervisors, office managers and admin staff.
Game-changing improvements were made to the CCA in December 2016. Register for a free seminar to find out how the changes will affect you!
