Webinar: Clarifying the Contractors State License Law

Please share:

August 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

1 Hour MCLE

California’s licensing laws are complex and pose the significant risk of your client not having the right to be paid and disgorgement of all compensation that has been paid.  This seminar will help guide you through the landmines and will cover the following:

  • Requirements of obtaining license;
  • The differences among the various license classifications (A, B, C) and the type of work allowed to be performed under each;
  • Bidding projects before being licensed;
  • When does the “work” under a construction contract begin?
  • Joint venture licensing;
  • Replacing the license qualifier;
  • Buying and selling a licensed business;
  • Worker’s Comp Rules;
  • The intersection between labor laws and licensing laws.
