An Alaska subcontractor agreement is a legal document created between two parties – a general contractor and a subcontractor – ahead of the work for a specific job.
Subcontractors are not “employees” of contractors under this agreement. They take on specific tasks or parts of a job the general contractor assigns. This occurs because subcontractors bring specialized skills or other niche resources that the general contractor does not have. This could include plumbing and electrical work, roofing, or different types of specialty jobs on a construction site.
(Included under the definition of “contractor”) “A person who, in the pursuit of an independent business, undertakes or offers to perform, or claims to have the capacity to perform, or submits a bid for a project to construct, alter, repair, move, or demolish a building, highway, road, railroad, or any type of fixed structure, including excavation and site development and erection of scaffolding; “contractor” includes a general contractor, builder, mechanical contractor, specialty contractor, and subcontractor.”
