A Wisconsin Subcontractor Agreement is a legal document outlining the rights and responsibilities of a general contractor and a subcontractor who have entered a relationship.
In addition to outlining the scope of the work for a specific project, a subcontractor agreement specifies when the subcontractor must complete work, how and when the general contractor will pay the subcontractor, and special insurance, transportation, or materials requirements. Once signed and dated, a subcontractor agreement becomes a binding contract.
Not every person who hires another party to perform one small part of a much larger job hires a subcontractor.
But if a general contractor hires someone to perform specialized tasks as part of a job (typically construction), such as electrical or plumbing work on a larger home improvement project, the hired person is a subcontractor.
