This clause seems potentially all encompassing to any event that causes an increase in any cost due to the fault of the Employer. I know a fault in the design is covered by PI insurance but I am questioning the first part that merely references a “fault of the employer”.
If for example an employer provides IT data for work that is corrupt, calls a training event that requires all contractor senior management to attend which results in loss of productivity and cost penalties, etc.
None of the guidance notes and commentary published on this clause gives any clarity and this seems very wide scoping. Should the events that the Employer is at fault only be those listed under clause 60.1 compensation events?
