Good evening and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
There is technically no limit on how much a handiman can "earn." The limitation is on what a handiman can charge per "contract." That limitation is $500. A handiman could theoretically have contracts with more than one client, all of which are completed on the same day. In that case, the handiman will have "earned" more than $500 in the day but not be in violation of the law. Again, the law restricts what a handiman can charge per "contract." Specifically, it prohibits handiman from engaging in contracts wherein: "the aggregate contract price which for labor, materials, and all other items, is less than five hundred dollars ($500), that work or operations being considered of casual, minor, or inconsequential nature. This exemption does not apply in any case wherein the work of construction is only a part of a larger or major operation, whetherundertaken by the same or a different contractor, or in which adivision of the operation is made in contracts of amounts less thanfive hundred dollars ($500) for the purpose of evasion of thischapter or otherwise."
Provided the handiman works within these limitations, the amount they earn will not violate any law.
