A Kentucky subcontractor agreement is used by a general contractor to delegate part of a project to a subcontractor and relay the terms of their working arrangement. The completed document will establish the timeline of the project, the services that the subcontractor will need to provide, and the terms of their payment. The subcontractor agreement is separate from the contract that the general contractor has with their client, and the general contractor will be responsible for the completion and quality of the subcontractor’s work, as well as for paying them when their portion of the project has been completed.
The contract indemnifies the general contractor and their client from any loss or liability that the subcontractor incurs during the course of the job. For this reason, the subcontractor will often be required to obtain liability insurance before they begin their work.
