WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU GET A CSLB COMPLAINT FORM LETTER By: Bruce D. Rudman Abdulaziz Grossbart & Rudman Some of you have been lucky and have never had a Contractors’ State License Board (“CSLB”) Complaint. Others have had a few. Lately, the “consumer playbook” is to not only litigate, but to file complaints with the CSLB, the license bond surety, and post negative reviews on social media including Yelp and Angie’s List. This article will only focus on the CSLB, but your response may be similar though the ramifications are different. When a Complaint is received by the Contractors Board, it is first assigned to an Intake Center who will informally try to resolve the case before sending it to an investigator. It is at this point that your best move is to do what you can to settle the claim. The CSLB usually sends a form letter to the contractor, advising that a Complaint has been received from a Complainant, the address where the project is located, and an advisory that the contractor should contact the customer and attempt to settle the matter. The form also requires a response to the Contractors Board. That response requires the contractor to advise the Board if: • A settlement was reached and identify the amount of the settlement; • Whether a settlement was offered and rejected; or • Whether there were no violations. Now, many contractors will immediately pick up the phone and call the Contractors Board but not send any further response. Others will set aside the letter and simply ignore it until they are called or contacted. Others may contact the customer and find out what is wrong. Sometimes, the contractor gets the form letter before the customer has even complained to the contractor and the contractor does not know what the complaint is about. In every case, even in cases where you are owed money or there is animosity between the customer and contractor, the contractor should make an effort to contact the owner in writing, with an offer to remedy the complaint. In that written communication – I generally recommend the method of communication the parties utilized during their course of business together, except I never recommend responding by text message – the contractor respond with the known reasons why the claim is refuted, and if there are any workmanship or warranty claims, the contractor should indicate that if there is a problem with the work, it is ready, willing and able to correct the work. These are the buzz words that should be used in every communication. If you use these words and the customer will not let you back in, it is hard to assert that you have abandoned the project. Further, there is case law that holds that a contractor that has offered to make the homeowner whole, but that offer was rejected, may not necessarily be subject to discipline. Since the contractor very well may be responding to multiple parties, compiling the information while it is still available and fresh in your mind is essential. Now, here is why you should timely respond: if you respond and the Complainant does not provide information to the CSLB as they may request, they will often close the file. If the contractor will not respond to the Intake Department, then they will assign it to an investigator. It is a rare occasion every contract requirement was included in the contract; it is easy to find technical violations which lead to a Citation. However, if an investigator is assigned, he or she will retain an industry expert to review the work. Having handled Contractors Board matters for 20 years, it is a rare occurrence that an industry expert will find nothing wrong with the work. Sometimes the findings are things not even included in your scope of work and that is your battle. However, you want to attempt to cut that off at the pass. If the case is assigned to an investigator, and you truly have an issue, you may want to consult with an attorney before meeting with the investigator or making a statement. If you are owed money, get your ducks in a row and document everything, including contracts, change orders and the like. If your contract does not comply with the law you may want to settle with the customer even if it pains you to do so. If the investigator offers you the CSLB Arbitration program, you may want to seriously consider that. You may not have a choice if the owner’s claim is for under $15,000 since the Contractors Board can compel you to participate in their program. The benefit of the program is that you argue the facts to a neutral arbitrator, and assuming you comply with the award, there is absolutely no negative report on your license information. Keeping a clear license history is very important as a Citation and Accusation will be a scarlet letter on your license for many years to come. If in doubt, discuss your case with an Attorney. Bruce Rudman has been practicing construction law for 20 years. He has garnered a great reputation in the construction field not only as a litigator but on licensing issues with the CSLB, particularly disciplinary proceedings.

WEEKLY QUOTE “One must know oneself, if this does not serve to discover truth, it at least serves as a rule of life and there is nothing better.” - Blaise Pascal
WEEKLY TIP Child care costs for working parents can be steep. Fortunately, some employee benefit plans offer dependent care flexible spending accounts. Parents can pay for qualified child care expenses and get a tax break at the same time by using these FSAs, which can be funded with pre-tax dollars.
It lacks fingers, yet it points. It lacks feet, yet it constantly runs. It lacks arms, yet it may periodically strike. What is it? Last week’s riddle: Kylie tells her friend Danielle that she knows of a place where Valentine’s Day comes after the Fourth of July. Where is this place? Last week’s answer: In the dictionary.
RISING WAGES, MODERATE HIRING IN DECEMBER
The Department of Labor’s latest employment report shows the average hourly wage at $26.00 last month, up 2.9% in a year. That is the largest annualized wage increase seen since June 2009. Payrolls expanded by 156,000 additional hires in December, leaving total 2016 job growth at a 5-year low of 2.2 million. (This could be a sign of the labor market reaching full employment.) The headline jobless rate ticked up to 4.7%, while the U-6 rate encompassing the underemployed was at 9.2%.1
MANUFACTURING ACTIVITY PICKED UP AS 2016 ENDED Investors liked what they saw in the Institute for Supply Management’s December purchasing manager indices. ISM’s manufacturing PMI rose 1.5 points to 54.7, its best reading in two years. The Institute’s service sector PMI held steady at an impressive 57.2 last month.2,3
FED OUTLOOK: CAUTIOUSLY OPTIMISTIC
Minutes from the December Federal Reserve policy meeting noted that Federal Open Market Committee members were reasonably confident about the economy for 2017, while citing some “uncertainty about the timing, size and composition” of future policy moves. In other words, the Fed may or may not ultimately follow through on its 2017 forecast of three interest rate hikes. FOMC members saw “only a modest risk” of a “sharp acceleration in prices” this year.4
DOW ENDS WEEK AT 19,964
The blue chips hit an intraday high of 19,999.63 Friday on the way to a 1.02% weekly advance to 19,963.80. As the Dow flirted with history, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq made history, respectively closing at record peaks of 2,276.98 and 5,521.06. The S&P gained 1.70% for the week; the Nasdaq, 2.56%. Dropping 19.37% in five days, the CBOE VIX “fear index” finished the trading week at 11.32.5,6 THIS WEEK: On Monday, Acuity Brands, Alcoa, and WD-40 report Q4 results. Nothing significant is scheduled on Tuesday. KB Home and SuperValu announce earnings Wednesday. Thursday, the latest initial jobless claims report appears, Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen addresses teachers at a Washington, D.C. town hall meeting, and Delta Air Lines shares Q4 results. The week’s major news items all arrive Friday – investors will consider the December retail sales report from the Census Bureau, December’s Producer Price Index, the initial January University of Michigan consumer sentiment index, and earnings reports from Bank of America, BlackRock, JPMorgan Chase, PNC, and Wells Fargo. % CHANGE

Safety benefits everyone. With fewer injuries, a business can be more productive and profitable. By incorporating safety rules, employees avoid injury as well as illness from exposure to hazardous substances.
