    7:00 am - 9:00 am

Speaker: Karen Galipeau Forner

Topic: General Contractor Liability

Description: Karen Galipeau Forner of K-Solutions Law, will be sharing with us on a New Department of Labor and Industries’ Policy which Finds General Contractors “Per Se” Liable for Safety Violations of Subcontractors.

The Stute court decision resulted in a Department policy when General Contractors could be found liable for safety violations of subcontractors.  Subsequent court decisions have resulted in a new Department policy where Building Owners, General Contractors and Upper Tier Contractors are “per se” liable for serious violations of Lower Tier Contractors.  Learn about the new policy and best practices to protect your business.
