Construction company owners typically want their projects to move forward as smoothly as possible for many reasons. They can keep customer satisfaction high, save money and give themselves the opportunity to take on more projects. Of course, setbacks can occur, and some of those may relate to contract disputes with workers.
Florida readers may be interested in such a dispute that has led to a delay in construction in another state. The crew was working to restore and renovate a building when the contract with the construction company expired on June 1. The workers continued with their duties for three weeks without a contract, but they have since halted their efforts until a new contract is put into place.
The project is expected to have apartments and retail space, and it was initially anticipated for the project to come to an end by the end of this year. However, it is unclear what types of delays will occur due to the contract dispute. It was noted that negotiations for a new contract are underway, but there was no date available for when the new contract may be put into effect.
Dealing with contract disputes can be a thorn in the side of many construction company owners. Of course, it is an issue that must be handled in order to keep operations underway. If Florida company owners are facing this type of issue with their workers, they may want to consult with their legal counsel regarding their options for effective and swift negotiations that could help keep schedules on course.
