My question involves independent contractors in the state of: Texas
What are the laws for protecting Subcontractors from Contractors taking money they want to backcharge off of a job that has nothing to do with the problem job? (i.e. - 'robbing one to pay another')
I thought there were laws that state they cannot do this. Have the laws changed?
Detail: There were problems on a job due to the Contractor's representative (Superintendent) giving the workers (subcontractors) incorrect information - and insisting they do the work 'their way'. The result was 'bad work' and the subcontractor was fired, even though following orders from the Contractor's rep. Then this company deducted monies from that job off of another (good) contract that had nothing to do with the 'bad job' and also fired this subcontractor from the good job as well, without cause.
