NEC ECC: Data for Both Schedules of Cost Components Option C
If you include rates in CDP2 for both schedules of cost components under:
Category of employee and hourly rate.
Can these rates be used to calculate the Defined Cost when assessing a compensation event for labour only subcontractors under 1.14 if for example you have a rate for an operative or do you use the actual cost?
The term states employee - would this mean labour only subcontractors would not fall under this category?
Note - the parties have not agreed to use the SSoCC.

to answer this question.
If the rate in Contract Data Part 2 specifically refers to 'category of employee' then it would be a directly employed resource, with the rate reflecting this status and inclusive of the components in 11, 12 and 13 of the SCC..
A 'labour only' resource may have the same categorisation, for example 'sub agent', although their cost would be included under component 14 of the SCC.
You may end up with a similar hourly rate but an 'employee' and 'labour only 'supplied resource represent different components of cost and should be treated as such under the SCC.
