Seminar on Recent Amendments to Pennsylvania’s Contractor and Subcontractor Payment Act (CASPA)

On October 10, 2018, significant changes to Pennsylvania’s Contractor and Subcontractor Payment Act (CASPA) will take effect.  Some of the areas impacted include a prohibition on the waiving of CASPA rights, the creation of a right to suspend work for nonpayment, the requirement that notice of deficiencies justifying the withholding of payment must be in writing, and right to post a maintenance bond to trigger the release of retainage.

In addition, the use of medical marijuana under Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Act (MMA) raises several employment law issues that must be considered by construction companies, as they try to balance the competing interests of the MMA, federal employment laws, and collective bargaining agreements.

Please join Babst Calland’s construction attorneys on Wednesday, October 10 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. for a brief yet informative complementary program at the DoubleTree Hotel in GreenTree to learn about the impact of these two important issues.  A complementary cocktail and networking reception will immediately follow the program.  You can still RVSP by sending an e-mail to Vicki Landa at vlanda@babstcalland.com.
