An Ohio subcontractor agreement is used by a contractor to hire a third party to provide their services in contribution to a larger contract with a client. This agreement is typically implemented in the construction industry, as it enables general contractors to outsource specific tasks to more qualified individuals, namely those with specialized insurance and licensing in a particular field (e.g., electrical, plumbing, HVAC).
Key components of the subcontractor agreement include the scope of work, payment, due date, contract termination, and indemnification. It is also vital to establish a dispute resolution clause that dictates what will happen if things go wrong, like disagreements concerning payment, the quality of work, or any provision of the agreement.
