About This Course
This course covers the basic overview of construction contractor licensing laws in California and discusses the consequences of violating the licensing requirements. We will cover the purpose of the licensing laws and their application to those who perform construction services, as well as applicable exemptions. The penalties for a violation can be severe and do not allow for equitable remedies.
We will review recent case law that clarifies the remedy available to a project owner who pays for work performed by an unlicensed subcontractor to a properly licensed general contractor. Whether you represent the project owner or the contractor, it is important to know the basics of the California contractor licensing laws.
