I am female and owner of a decorative pavement company in Central Pennsylvania. I've been in business
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: I recently did some work on the bike lanes in Washington, D.C. across the street from Trump International Hotel. I was asked by another person I have worked with a little before (he and his brother were in business together when I worked with them). He told me that the project was 400 sf. (very small) and it needed to be done by the next Saturday (4 days in the future). I agreed to do the work, and asked for something in writing (contract
or purchase order) but this person said there that was not necesssary - that someone would be there to pay me as soon as the work was done.
JA: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.
Customer: The job turned out to be much larger and no one but my contact showed up that day. I asked repeatedly to be put in touch with the person with the contract, but he refused, saying that the payout would be in 60 days.
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: I was sent plans by my contact that showed the scope of the project with only one name as the sender cut from an email sent to my contact.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I would like to speak with a female lawyer who has knowledge of construction cases where sub-contractors don't receive payment.
