Are you hoping to register yourself as a Contractor? Are you not sure if you need to be registered? Don’t know where to start?
As a law firm that’s been practicing construction law in Southern California for years, we know there are a lot of moving parts when it comes to public works projects. Luckily, our team of attorneys have created this California Public Law Contract series to help our fellow contractors cut through all the noise and help you figure out what you need to be on your way.
California state law requires that all contractors be registered in order to work. So, to bid on, be listed in a bid proposal, or engage in the performance of any public work contract, contractors, and subcontractors must register with the Department of Industrial Relations and pay an annual registration fee.
To register, contractors and subcontractors must demonstrate that they
Awarding bodies are required to include notice of the registration requirement in bid invitations and public works contracts and cannot accept a contract or subcontract entered into without proof of the contractor or subcontractor’s current registration.
Public works contracts entered into with any contractor or subcontractor in violation of the registration requirements are subject to cancellation, but are not unlawful, void, or voidable solely due to the failure of the awarding body, contractor, or any subcontractor to comply with the requirements of the Labor Code.
