Construction projects are complicated and involve many parties. When contractors, construction companies and building owners disagree on the finished product or its associated cost, the circumstances may bring serious disagreements.
To legally engage in a contract with a homeowner, contractors must follow specific steps required by the Massachusetts Home Improvement Contractor Statute.
Massachusetts law contains a series of laws regulating how and when hourly workers must be paid. As a small business owner, you are at risk of a lawsuit if one of your employees believes that their rights have been violated.
