Details :

There are times when contractors upon non-payment may be tempted to suspend work immediately or to seek to terminate their contracts. However, can a single refusal to pay an interim payment be sufficiently serious to amount to a repudiation? What if employers, although mistaken, honestly believe they have a right to deductions and set-offs which justifies non-payment? What damages are recoverable upon termination? The speaker will address these common but not so straightforward issues as well as pitfalls to watch out for generally when exercising the right to terminate in particular due to non-payment by employers.
