The Subletting and Subcontracting Fair Practices Act goes into Effect on July 1, 2014

As our earlier post and emails have indicated, last year Governor Brown signed into law a new twist to The Subletting and Subcontracting Fair Practices Act (Act). The change goes into effect on July 1, 2014. If you are a contractor submitting a bid to a public entity for a California public works project will be required to include the contractor license number of each subcontractor you have listed.

The Act requires any public entity taking bids for the construction of any public work or improvement to specify that any person making a bid or offer to perform the work shall, in his or her bid or offer, include specified information, including the name and location of the place of business of each subcontractor who will perform work or labor or render service to the prime contractor in or about the work or improvement. The July 1, 2014 change added the requirement that the subcontractor's license now be included.
