Should an employer have the desire to be a foreman for a particular contract, can each trade be engaged on an JCT Minor Works Building Contract 2009 contract?

Although the JCT Minor Works Building Contract 2009 contract is often relied upon under these circumstances, it is not necessarily the best option, as it is not specifically produced in order to deal with the relationship between employers and contractors.

In order to address the above scenario, many additional clauses would have to be drafted in order to deal with various elements related to, for example, attendances and claims. Generally speaking, a more efficient and holistic approach is for an employer to commission a specific contract to deal with such matters, which would overcome the problem of contractors potentially refusing to agree to what could be considered unfamiliar terms.
