New Type 1 Indemnity Law and Who is on my Scaffolding and Why are They Suing Me?

Provider: Mason Contractors Association of California, Inc.
Discipline: Ethics & Business Practices
Credits: 1.00

California has enacted legislation to remove construction businesses’ ability to obtain indemnity for their own active fault from other parties connected with a project. This type of indemnity (called Type 1 – indemnity for own active fault) will be restricted effective January 1, 2013. You just signed a contract for a job starting January 2013. What’s in the fine print? And, it’s Monday afternoon. You get a call. Someone has fallen 20 feet from your scaffolding. It’s not your employee. It’s the plaster guy. The ambulance just left the job site. Five days later you receive a letter from the plaster guy’s attorney. So it begins. Five-time “California Super Lawyer” and a Top 25 San Diego Construction Attorney in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2011 and 2012, Randy Finch will help us navigate these scenarios and what they mean for subcontractors in today’s construction environment.
