The question is regarding Section 14 in the People section of the Schedule of Cost Components;
“The following components of the cost of people who are not directly employed by the Contractor but are paid for him according to the time worked while they are within the Working Areas”
Can I have an example of who this would apply too? We have many different cases where site labourers are working within the working area however are employed via agency or sub-contractors.
Who is entitled to the WAO %?
I would personally say that labours working for the contractor via agency would be entitled to the WAO%
However I would argue that if the labourers are supplied by a sub-contractor with a contract in place then they would not be entitled to the WAO% due to the opening line off the SCC
“In this schedule the Contractor means the Contractor and not his subcontractors.”
We have a Sub-Contractor providing a labour only service – would these be entitled to WAO%. My view would be no entitlement due to the above (they are sub-contractors with a subcontract contract in place)
