NEC ECC: Recovering Laundry costs under The Shorter Schedule Of Cost Components

I currently have a live contract with a subcontractor under option E, is my sub contractor allowed to recover laundry costs. Which cost component would this fall in to?

If they can be counted as “protective clothing”, then ‘Yes’ under People 13 (h) of the Schedule of Cost Components. Otherwise not directly i.e. included in one of the percentages.

I assume you are not talking about money laundering - which would be illegal and hence dis-allowable!
