A Vermont Subcontractor Agreement is a legal contract outlining the responsibilities and duties of contractors and subcontractors on a construction or home improvement project.
This agreement typically includes a subcontractor’s scope of work, the job’s payment terms, and insurance and transportation requirements.
When a general contractor accepts a job from a client, sometimes he or she lacks the resources necessary to complete it, such as manpower or specialized skills like electrical knowledge. In that case, the contractor could turn to a subcontractor to fill the gap.
The term ‘subcontractor’ refers to any person or business contracted to perform work, provide materials or equipment, or provide the labor required for another contractor to complete a job. For example, if a general contractor hires a plumber to complete part of a home renovation, the plumber meets Vermont’s definition of a subcontractor.
