Breach of Contract Allegations Arise From Non-Payment to Subcontractors

June 11th, 2015

Unfortunately, not everyone who enters a contract upholds his or her duties. When this happens, it may be considered a breach of contract.

One such North Carolina business dispute involves a failure to pay subcontractors for work performed on a construction project at the Smith Reynolds Airport in Winston-Salem.

Subcontractors broke ground on the project in 2008. But when they were to receive their first payment, no money ever came in. Subsequent checks also failed to arrive and they were soon thrown off the job without payment.

When the contractor for the project was approached about the lack of payments, they cited paperwork issues as the reason.

Documents show this may not be the case though and instead, concerns about a breach of contract and illegal business practices may be the reason for the non-payments and the dismissal.

An article from The Charlotte Post outlines an exchange of emails from top officials overseeing the project that provides evidence that payments were wrongfully withheld from the subcontractors.
