The problem is so common: They did the work, they weren’t paid. The general contractor was interviewed by 9 News and claims that the workers’ boss (a subcontractor” is “paid up to date.” The subcontractor who owes the workers says “the general contractor is wrong.”
Ah, but someone is lying, yes?
This is a prime example of when the mechanics lien remedy is most effective. It’s a shame that the exposé story by 9 News fails to mention the mechanics lien remedy at all, and it seems like the unpaid workers haven’t filed a lien or considered it.
It’s obvious the workers are having trouble with their employer, a Terry Boyd whose company is named B&B Ltd. Without filing a mechanics lien, however, the workers are stuck seeking the money solely from Boyd. The general contractor can just sit back and make the comment he made: “all my subs are paid.”
Things get a little stickier if these employees were to file a mechanics lien. Then, the general contractor and the property owner would be forced into the situation and required to make payment directly to the workers. For an explanation of this, please see the article 5 Ways A Mechanics Lien Can Get You Paid.
