Some contractors pay large amount to Bona Fide Sub Contractors and if their payments are more than 25% of their turnover the policy will be voidable. On site there is an unwritten rule that if a sub-contractor causes any damage or injuries they will have to deal with it. That’s fine, but what if their cover is on the wrong basis or they haven’t paid the premium and cover has been cancelled. Then the claim will come back on the main contractor. It is therefore imperative, that your contractors insurance policy has contingency cover so that your insurers step in and handle the claim.
