(Webcast) The New York Prompt Pay Act for Construction Contractors

  • The Prompt Pay Act is a powerful tool for construction law practitioners, but has been rarely utilized since its passing in 2002. The Act provides for expedited arbitration of construction disputes which might otherwise languish in court for years, and requires owners and general contractors to provide explicit grounds for any non-payment of disputed invoices. The statute further preempts certain inconsistent contract terms which would frustrate its goals of promoting prompt and fair payment of contractors.
