The “complete and definitive” trap is often used by the debtor, where the debtor makes a written or oral statement that the payment now resolves the problem. It may also take a more formal form, such as the fine print at the end of a transfer statement indicating that partial repayment is the “full and final settlement.” If the creditor accepts a simultaneous payment, it can be assumed that a “depreciation offer” has been accepted for the remaining debts. When your work is completed (excluding punchlists), it is your responsibility to apply for a salary for the work done at the GC. Your invoice triggers the GC to charge the owner an invoice that will start the watch, which will determine when the final payment will be made (see next section). As mentioned above, be sure to start the payment clock by sending your bill to the GC as soon as your work is done. 11.3.1 – “If, for some reason that is not the subcontractor`s fault, no certificate of payment is issued, if the contractor does not receive payment in a timely manner or does not pay the subcontractor within seven days of receiving the payment by the owner, the final payment to the subcontractor is made upon request.” 11.3.2 – “Before the final payment is issued, the subcontractor provides the subcontractor, if necessary, satisfactory proof that all payroll bills, equipment and equipment invoices and all known debts related to the subcontractor`s work are met. The subcontractor`s acceptance of the final payment constitutes a waiver of the subcontractor`s claims, with the exception of those previously made in writing and deemed unsettled by the subcontractor on the date of the final application.” Make sure you know what the interest rate is per contract. If it is not specifically stated in this section, ask the GC to include it so that everyone knows what the fine is in the event of a late payment. In addition to resolving disputes in civil proceedings, transaction agreements are often used in the employment context to resolve workers` claims against employers.
A worker or worker may agree to waive severance pay in court or the labour court or not to bring an action against an employer. 11.4 – Interest – “Payments due under this subcontracting that are not paid are due from the date the payments are due at a rate that the parties may agree in writing or, failing that, where the project is located from time to time.” In the context of debt, debtors sometimes attempt to settle debts of less than their totality by “full and final resolution.”
