Part Four: As is true with other types of construction defects, disputes as to the performance of materials selected for the project will invariably result in finger pointing between the architect or engineer who specified the material, the supplier who supplied the material and even the laborers who installed the material.

Having improper or defective materials installed can result in the construction being non-conforming (or unacceptable) to the owner.

Part Three: This is a continuing article series on Construction Defects in New York, These include an introduction (part 1), design defects (part 2), defective construction (part 3), improper materials (part 4), improper installations (part 5) and finally important time limitations which apply to seeking legal action for defective construction in New York (part 6). For a defect to be construction based, it can range in scope from a contractors failure to perform to completion of the project, to gross deviations from the approved construction plans and specifications. The existence of a defect alone, however, does not necessarily mean it is the contractor who is to blame. After all, the contractor is only responsible for satisfying its performance of the construction contract. However, should the contractor have any reason to suspect there is defect in the design of the project, the contractor has a duty to point these out to the owner or designer.[1] This duty to call out such observations was established in New York in the matter of Caceci v. DiCanio Const. Corp. 72 N.Y.2d 52, 530 N.Y.S.2d 771, 526 N.E.2d 266 (1988). Although the plans and specifications of this project did not call for any additional foundation work, the soil at the site was comprised of large amounts of organic materials, including trees, which made it incumbent upon the contractor to point this deficiency out. The contractor’s failure to do so resulted in substantial liability.

A defect isn't necessarily the contractor's fault; defective construction can range from failure to complete the project to deviations of the plans or specs

Guardianships in New York are strictly tailored to the particular circumstances. Article 81 of New York’s Mental Hygiene Law allows a court to appoint a guardian to manage the personal and/or financial affairs of an individual deemed incapacitated. The court must find that the alleged incapacitated person (“AIP”) cannot appreciate the nature and consequences of their inability to handle such matters and that the AIP is likely to suffer harm if a guardian is not appointed. As Special Needs Planning Month comes to a close, head over to our blog to learn more about Article 81 Guardianship.

Design defects' liability only arises when the architect or engineer failed to perform in accordance with the community standard.

Menopause in the workplace: Employment Law guidance for Employers from Hatch Brenner Solicitors The 18 October is World Menopause Day, a day that aims to raise awareness of the menopause and the support options available. With many more women in the workplace, and our population living longer, the awareness of the impact of the menopause in the workplace is rightly increasing. Norwich solicitors and Employment Law specialist, Hatch Brenner explore menopause in the workplace. The menopause occurs in women between the ages of 45 – 55, with the average age in the UK being 51 although it can also happen earlier or later. There are 35 million women aged over 50 in the workplace and menopause symptoms can have a significant impact on women, as well as impacting colleagues and organisational management. Menopause symptoms last around four years, and can include: Hot flushes Night sweats Difficulty sleeping Reduced sex drive (libido) Problems with memory and concentration Headaches Mood changes; low mood and anxiety Noticeable heartbeats Joint stiffness, aches and pains Recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) Menopause and the law There are provisions within Employment Law that can guide organisations as to supporting their staff. The Equality Act 2010 protects workers against discrimination including because of their sex, disability and age. Whilst menopause and perimenopause (the menopause transitional phase which can occur during the 40s for most women) are not specifically protected under the Equality Act, where a worker is treated unfairly because of menopause and perimenopause, this may amount to discrimination (for sex and/or disability and/or age). This has also been demonstrated in case law – in Davies v Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service menopause symptoms were accepted to be a disability in an employment tribunal. In addition to protection under the Equality Act 2010, the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 says an employer must, where reasonably practical, ensure the health, safety and welfare of their employees at work. What can workplaces do to assist women in the workplace? As the stigma around menopause starts to lift, organisations can help improve their workplace environment to support their staff. In return, this can help reduce staff sickness absence which may be related to menopausal symptoms and help improve staff wellbeing and productivity. Positive actions might include: Offering flexibility including supporting staff to work from home where practicable Improving temperature control and ventilation – providing a fan, and a desk seated near a window that opens Where uniforms are worn, ensure they are well-fitting and comfortable Provide a suitable place for rest Ensure easily available toilet and washroom facilities Provide cold drinking water The role of managers in supporting menopausal staff Ensure women feel confident in approaching their manager to raise concerns and for support Understand how perimenopause and menopause can affect an employee Implement support and working practice and environment changes where appropriate Understand the relevant employment law relating to menopause Offer options for employees who feel unable to approach their managers on the subject including discussions with the human resources team, trade union representatives or counsellors Managing sickness and absence due to menopause Given the employment law protection of employees related to The Equality Act, employers should manage and sickness or absence due to menopause with care. Time off sick because of perimenopause or menopause should be recorded in a way that can be distinguished from other absences. ACAS provide useful guidance on menopause at work. Bengi Karakus is a Trainee Solicitor within the Hatch Brenner Solicitors Dispute Resolution Team.

Part One: Defects exist throughout all construction projects and it’s likely no construction project is ever completed perfectly. In New York construction however, perfection is not the legal standard by which construction is generally measured. The standard used to judge completed construction is the ordinary and reasonable skill that is usually exercised by architects, engineers, contractors and others in that work.[1]Therefore, not all defects are necessarily actionable under New York construction law. #constructionlaw #constructiondefects #defects

In New York construction, perfection is not the legal standard; not all defects are necessarily actionable under New York construction law.

The New York Education Department, Office of the Professions, regulates the licensing of the various professions, such as Lawyers, Certified Public Accountants, Architects, and other professions practicing within the state. Typically these professionals must pass initial education and examination requirements, and are also required to maintain certain levels of continuing education units. These requirements are intended to foster continued education and training throughout their career.

Before transferring property, it is important to determine who holds ownership of the property.

In a recent client conference, I was asked, “So what is arbitration, anyhow?” In the context of a construction claim or in seeking to prevent such a claim, there are several significant advantages that arbitration can provide in lieu of litigation. In today’s challenging business environment, this signifies awareness of the various options available that could make an important impact on your business’ circumstance. Briefly stated, arbitration is a private, informal process by which all parties agree, in writing, to submit their dispute to one or more impartial persons authorized to resolve the controversy by rendering a final and binding award.[i] What makes this process unique is the ability, with some advance consideration, to customize and tailor the dispute resolution process to suit the needs of the company.
