As a homeowner, did you ever wonder what was in a Construction Contract? Did you ever question what it was for, what it protected, or even who it protected? When it comes to home and commercial renovations, a homeowner may decide that receiving a signed construction contract is not necessary, perhaps because the size of the project is on the smaller side – however, this may be a decision that they soon regret. Whether a homeowner is renovating a small bathroom or building a home from the ground up, Construction Contracts should always be your very first step before breaking ground, or walls! Depending on the size of the project, Construction Contracts can be as small as one page or go far beyond 20 pages. Even though the size of the agreement can vary, the following are some of the most important fundamental points that a Construction Contract should reference, along with a general overview of each point: Agreement – This section will include who the parties are (i.e. owner, contractor, etc.), their respective addresses, and the location of the construction project. General Conditions – General and Special Conditions are typically the rules, limitations, and restrictions mutually agreed to by the homeowner and the contractor. This section will include items such as the general terms used throughout the contract and a breakdown of the contents of the contract, as well as the responsibilities and rights of each of the parties to the contract. Scope of Work – This section contains the list of materials, charts, or reports that are provided by a contractor, acting as a construction checklist. It will lay out the specific work being done and the manner in which it will be executed. Drawings / Plans – Drawings and Plans in a construction contract consist of the blueprint(s) for your project. Blueprints contain floor plans, elevations, walls, plumbing systems, electrical layouts, and more. This section will contain references to – and the locations of – the specific drawings and/or plans being used on your construction project. Schedule of Construction – This section will set forth the specific timeline for your construction project, including the commencement date, the phase completion dates, and the final completion date. These dates can be affected by supply stock, weather, and if the project owner is up to date on payment terms. Negotiated Cost – This will contain the cost of the entire project and the breakdown of payments, if applicable, and may include any negotiated costs for labor and supplies. The payment terms, such as deposit, payment plan, method of payment, or lien consequences may also be included. As you can see, Construction Contracts hold great importance for all parties and lay out the protection and rights for everyone involved, allowing for a (hopefully) smooth construction project. A Construction Contract brings peace of mind for the parties involved, as well as organization, and the preservation of order and ease. If you are a contractor or homeowner and need a third-party review of your contract, or need a contract drawn up, reaching out to your local Construction Attorney would be your best option to assure accuracy and legitimacy of the contract. Additional guidance can be found at https://www.aiacontracts.org/ which provides parties with initial drafts for their construction contracts.

Certain Biden-Harris proposals may, if enacted, have a significant effect on your estate plan. 2020 was a monumental year with many changes and 2021 may bring changes that affect your estate plan. As a presidential candidate, President-Elect Biden put forth two proposals that would most effect estate planning.

The COVID-19 suspension of jury trials will likely have an impact on courts for years to come due to the back-up of court dockets. Most cases usually settle in about a year, but because there is no fear of trial, there is no pressure on the insurance company to settle right now.

The Constitution guarantees the accused a right to a fair and speedy trial, but it has been almost a year since jury trials have taken place regularly across Texas.

New Guidance Indicates Construction Not Likely To Be Shut Down In New York Long Island Construction Law does not own this content. This content was created by Jenn Goodman and was published to Construction Drive on December 18th, 2020. New York officials have issued additional guidance about construction’s essential status that seems to indicate that even in the areas hardest hit by the coronavirus outbreak, construction will most likely remain essential. Based on the latest clarification, the Associated General Contractors of New York State told its members in an emailed update yesterday that it believes the following applies: If a region becomes a “Red Zone,” the guidance at this link on essential business applies. This guidance deems construction broadly essential, saying that projects may continue, but any work that can be done remotely such as office-based work must proceed remotely to the extent practicable. Employees who are not directly involved in in-person work at the business location/construction site are prohibited. If the state moves to a full shutdown such as happened with this spring’s “NY on Pause,” then the more restrictive definition of essential construction would apply, halting projects across the state but allowing for the continuation of school, infrastructure and healthcare construction among other types of projects. AGC NYS CEO Mike Elmendorf said the changing guidance is not surprising, because the industry and government officials are navigating the effects of a surging pandemic while balancing safety and jobs. “The governor and his team are making adjustments and changes as the facts and data warrant, and at times that means things get confusing. It is to a significant degree unavoidable. We are in uncharted waters here,” he said. “We certainly understand that and have been communicating regularly with the administration on these matters since the start — and we appreciate the clarity that has been brought to this from the start,” he added. “We have come a long way on clarity since the spring.” The construction industry has been broadly deemed essential from the beginning of the pandemic, Elmendorf noted. “We have kept working and the data shows we have done it safely,” he said. “In doing so, we have kept a critical component of our economy and critical supply chains online. We are prepared to continue doing that — safely.” Dive Brief: Much like during the early days of the pandemic, new COVID-19 guidance from New York State puts renewed focus on whether businesses, including construction, are essential. This weekend, the state updated its guidance for its COVID Cluster Action Initiative indicating that all but essential businesses will be shut down if a region reaches Red Zone status. The initiative divides clusters and the areas around them into three categories with successively higher restrictions: Yellow Zones, Orange Zones and Red Zones. For contractors, the new guidance relies on a more restrictive definition of essential construction (item 9 here) in Red Zone areas, eliminating previous language that appeared to broadly deem construction as essential, according to a letter from the Associated General Contractors of New York State to its members. Dive Insight: The zones are designed to help control COVID-19 spread and protect hospital capacity in New York, which has seen rising caseloads since the fall. According to an online tracker, no areas are deemed Red Zones but there are several Orange and Yellow areas. The metrics used for each are: Red Zone: A Red Zone will be implemented when a region, after the cancellation of elective procedures and a 50% increase in hospital capacity, is 21 days away from reaching 90% hospital capacity on the current seven-day growth rate. Orange Zone: A geographic area will be eligible to an Orange Zone if it has a 4% positivity rate (seven-day average) over the last 10 days and it is located in a region that has reached 85% hospital capacity. Alternatively, an area may also become an Orange Zone if the New York State Department of Health determines the region’s rate of hospital admissions is unacceptably high and a zone designation is appropriate to control the rate of growth. Yellow Zone: A geographic area will be eligible to enter a Yellow Zone if it has a 3% positivity rate (seven-day average) over the past 10 days and is in the top 10% in the state for hospital admissions per capita over the past week and is experiencing week-over-week growth in daily admissions. As national virus case counts spike, and daily death tolls reach their highest levels since the spring, contractors around the country are worried about the potential for more stop-work orders to prevent the continued spread of COVID-19, similar to initial shutdowns that were put in place in the first weeks of the pandemic, prior to construction being deemed essential in most regions. The AGC NYS last week led a statewide coalition of industry groups calling on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to continue to deem construction essential in all zones. “As COVID-19 cases continue to spike throughout New York State and the nation, the construction industry has worked in a safe and essential manner,” read a letter signed by the leaders of 21 construction-focused groups and trade unions. “We strongly urge you to keep construction as an essential business so that we can keep this critical sector of the economy working.” In a briefing last week, Cuomo provided data that showed construction as the source of exposure in only .66% of COVID-19 cases from September to November, according to contact tracing data. AGC NYS CEO Mike Elmendorf noted, in the letter to members, that the situation is evolving and said that he anticipates the industry is re-entering a period of frequent changes to rules and guidance.

New York officials have issued additional guidance about construction’s essential status that seems to indicate that even in the areas hardest hit by the coronavirus.

John Caravella’s Article on Affirmative Action for Contractors to be Featured in Nassau County Bar Association’s “The Nassau Lawyer” Publication In January 2021, The Nassau Lawyer will publish an article written by Mr. Caravella, regarding protected classes and anti-discrimination laws within New York State. Business Owners and Contractors are encouraged to stay informed of these issues and reform efforts. To obtain a copy of this topic article, please visit www.nassaubar.org, or please scroll down below. Primer on Affirmative Action for Construction Contractors By John Caravella All businesses must avoid discriminating against members of protected classes when making employment decisions, but federal contractors, including construction contractors, must also take affirmative steps to ensure that they hire and promote members of protected classes. As discussed below, these affirmative action requirements derive from several discrete legal authorities and carry a range of undesirable sanctions for violators. Moreover, recent changes in antidiscrimination law suggest a growing tension between affirmative action and color- and gender-blindness that may further complicate matters for construction contractors in the future. While the laws discussed herein apply to all federal contractors, provisions vary between construction and non-construction contractors. This article focuses on affirmative action as it pertains to construction contractors in particular. There are three primary sources of affirmative action requirements: Executive Order 11246; the Rehabilitation Act of 1973; and the Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (the “VEVRAA”). Executive Order 11246, as amended, applies to equal opportunity regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin and requires federal contractors to take affirmative action to ensure that applicants are employed, and employees are treated during employment, without regard to the foregoing classes.[i] The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires federal contractors to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified individuals with disabilities.[ii] The VEVRAA requires federal contractors to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified covered veterans, including disabled veterans and recently separated veterans.[iii] The three schemes of affirmative action requirements affect construction contractors differently and impose different requirements. Executive Order 11246’s coverage spans all construction contracts with the federal government and its agencies, and all contracts undertaken with federal funds, where the contract sum is at least $10,000.00.[iv] Relevant exceptions include contracts for work to be performed outside the United States by workers from outside the United States and contractors giving hiring preference to Native American Indians with respect to projects on or near Native American Indian reservations.[v] Given the narrow field of applicable exemptions, essentially all construction contracts with federal authorities will be subject to equal opportunity and affirmative action requirements as to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin. Where Executive Order 11246 applies, the contractor must initially maintain personnel records for up to two years from the date of making the record or the personnel action involved, including not only documentation as to employees but also job applications, postings, and submissions from applicants.[vi] The contractor must be able to identify the gender, race, and ethnicity of employees and applicants in connection with these records.[vii] While construction contractors are not required to develop a written affirmative action plan under Executive Order 11246 and its regulations,[viii] they must take affirmative actions including the following: Making employment opportunities known to minority and female recruitment sources; Reviewing equal employment opportunity policies with all minority and female employees; Specifically directing recruitment efforts to minority, female, and community organizations, schools with minority and female students, and minority and female recruitment and training organizations; Encouraging present minority and female employees to recruit other minorities and women; and Annually evaluating all minority and female employees for promotional opportunities and encouraging minority and female employees to seek or prepare for such opportunities through training.[ix] Much like Executive Order 11246, the Rehabilitation Act applies to construction contracts where the contract sum is more than $10,000, including subcontracts where the project owner is the federal government or one of its agencies.[x] There is also a similar exclusion for employment activities outside the United States.[xi] Unlike Executive Order 11246, however, the Rehabilitation Act imposes greater requirements, in the form of a written affirmative action plan, where the above criteria are met and where the employer has more than 50 employees and a covered contract for least $50,000.[xii] Under the Rehabilitation Act and its regulations, there is a similar two-year record-keeping requirement concerning personnel actions, with the same abbreviated period for smaller employers.[xiii] Above and beyond that, however, the regulations require contractors to expressly invite applicants and employees to self-identify as a person with a disability.[xiv] Where the size of the employer and contract necessitate a written affirmative action plan, its requirements include: Ensuring that personnel practices allow for the consideration of applicants and employees with disabilities for hiring or promotion; Ensuring that physical and mental job requirements that might screen out persons with disabilities are related to the job in question and born of business necessity; Addressing performance problems of individuals with known disabilities by inquiring whether the problem is related to the disability and whether the individual requires a reasonable accommodation; Specifically recruiting qualified individuals with disabilities, such as by sharing job openings with a state developmental services office or a private organization that specializes in training and placement of individuals with disabilities; and Maintaining records of hiring activities with respect to individuals with disabilities for three years.[xv] As opposed to Executive Order 11246 and the Rehabilitation Act, VEVRAA has its own, distinct application. Construction contracts with the federal government and its agencies of more than $150,000 are subject to VEVRAA.[xvi] Like the laws discussed above, VEVRAA applies only to employment activities within the United States, [xvii] and like the Rehabilitation Act, the requirement for a written affirmative action plan only applies to contractors with more than 50 employees.[xviii] VEVRAA requires substantially similar actions to those under the Rehabilitation Act but for the fact that they apply to covered veterans rather than individuals with disabilities. The two-year record-keeping requirements for general personnel records are the same, with the same reduced record-keeping requirement for smaller employers.[xix] Contractors must invite applicants and employees to self-identify as covered veterans,[xx] and where required, an affirmative action plan must ensure that personnel processes permit advancement, direct outreach efforts to appropriate agencies, and maintain hiring records for three years, albeit geared toward protected veterans in this instance.[xxi] Additionally, contractors must list employment opportunities with employment service delivery systems so qualified covered veterans may be referred,[xxii] and finally, contractors must set benchmarks for hiring qualified covered veterans, which may be calculated in alternative ways, and retain records concerning their setting of benchmarks for three years.[xxiii] While the foregoing laws concern employment actions vis a vis minority groups, contractors must nevertheless avoid giving the impression of hostility to what might be considered “majority” groups. Recently, President Donald J. Trump signed into law Executive Order 13950, which contains several provisions relevant to affirmative action programs and applicable to federal construction contracts. With respect to all federal construction contracts except those exempt from Executive Order 11246, contractors are forbidden from using “any workplace training that inculcates in [their] employees any form of race or sex stereotyping or any form of race or sex scapegoating[.]”[xxiv] Race or sex stereotyping is defined as “ascribing character traits, moral and ethical codes, privileges, status, or beliefs to a race or sex, or to an individual because of his or her race or sex.”[xxv] Race or sex scapegoating is defined as “assigning fault, blame, or bias to a race or sex, or to members of a race or sex, or to an individual because of his or her race or sex.”[xxvi] Executive Order 13950 might seem like it is at odds with a statutory and regulatory scheme geared toward affording advancement opportunities for minority workers, but these provisions can be reconciled. Executive Order 13950 does not mandate treatment of workers regardless of race or sex, which would of course preclude affirmative action. Rather, it requires neutrality in training, which cannot assign any particular characteristics, including fault for the necessity of affirmative action laws, to any race or gender. Ultimately, both as a matter of compliance with Executive Order 13950 and avoiding workplace conflict, construction contractors should discuss race and sex discrimination and affirmative action only in terms of the employer’s obligation without offering any opinions on whether—or why—such measures are proper or necessary. Noncompliance, whether with Executive Order 13950, Executive Order 11246, the Rehabilitation Act, or VEVRAA, carries a series of penalties. Under all of these laws, a construction contract may be cancelled, suspended, or terminated in the event of a violation, and the contractor may be debarred from being awarded federal contracts.[xxvii] Other potential penalties include backpay to employees with interest and injunctions against further violations,[xxviii] as well as the withholding of progress payments.[xxix] Earlier this year, the Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, which enforces the affirmative action laws, resolved a complaint against federal construction subcontractor EnviroVantage Inc. for failing to hire 12 eligible female workers, resulting in the contractor paying $100,000 in back wages and interest and agreeing to hire 12 eligible female workers as positions became open.[xxx] The resolution of a complaint for Fort Myer Construction Corp.’s violations, including violating the affirmative action laws by failing to hire qualified female and African American applicants, involved a payment of $900,000 and a commitment to offer positions to 7 qualified women and 30 qualified African Americans as positions become available.[xxxi] Under the threat of the foregoing sanctions, construction contractors must walk a proverbial tightrope to comply with affirmative action requirements. Although the introduction of Executive Order 13950 does not outright contradict those requirements, it suggests the idea of a departure from affirmative action that may or may not take off. Ultimately, this field of law continues to evolve, and navigating it successfully will continue to require extraordinary tact on the part of construction contractors and their attorneys John Caravella, Esq. is a construction attorney and formerly practicing project architect at The Law Office of John Caravella, P.C., representing architects, engineers, contractors, subcontractors, and owners in all phases of contract preparation, litigation, and arbitration across New York and Florida.

It is important to be mindful of New York’s steep estate tax cliff and plan accordingly with an experienced estate planning attorney. Don’t fall off the cliff!

New York State has an estate tax “cliff”, which means that if an estate exceeds 105% of the New York estate tax exemption then the estate will receive absolutely no exemption from New York estate taxes and the entire value of the estate is subject to New York’s estate tax.…

US construction spending increases solid 0.9% in November Spending on U.S. construction projects increased 0.9% in November as strength in home building offset weakness in other parts of the construction industry. The November gain followed a bigger 1.6% rise in October and left construction spending up 4.4% through the first 11 months of 2020 compared to the same period in 2019, according to the Commerce Department. For November, spending on residential construction rose 2.7% with single-family construction surging 5.1 percent while apartment construction was flat, according to the new data released Monday. Record low mortgage rates have spurred strong demand for housing even as a global pandemic resulted in widespread lock downs for other parts of the economy. Spending on non-residential projects fell 0.8% with spending for office buildings dropping a sharp 8.1%. Spending on government projects dipped 0.2% in November. Many state and local governments are facing severe budget constraints as a sharp recession has cut into tax revenues. Construction employment on Long Island still lags behind last year. The number of construction jobs in Nassau and Suffolk counties fell 6 percent year over year, dropping from 84,400 in Nov. 2019 to 79,600 in Nov. 2020, according to the Associated General Contractors of America. Regionally, construction employment in New York City decreased by 11 percent from Nov. 2019 to Nov. 2020, losing 16,700 construction jobs year over year. Construction employment in the Orange-Rockland-Westchester area fell by 3,500 jobs from Nov. 2019 to Nov. 2020, for an 8 percent drop. Nationwide, construction employment declined in 203 out of 358 metro areas, between Nov. 2019 to Nov. 2020, the AGCA reports.
