A Mississippi Subcontractor Agreement is a document that outlines the relationship between two parties: a contractor and a subcontractor. Its purpose is to protect the rights and responsibilities of both parties.
In addition to describing the subcontractor’s work, the contract outlines when labor begins, the expected completion date, pay due to the subcontractor and the promised pay date, and more.
A typical subcontractor agreement also details the job requirements, like the type of insurance the subcontractor must carry, whether he or she will provide personal transportation, and what materials the subcontractor has to furnish.
A subcontractor’s duty is to perform a task or set of tasks under a “prime contract” between a contractor and a property owner. Therefore, if you have a contractual relationship directly with a client or property owner, you fall outside the definition of a subcontractor according to Mississippi law.
