Unfortunately, this can be difficult in the fast-paced construction industry, where things can turn at the drop of a hat. You need access to accurate information if you want to remain compliant with the various laws governing the construction industry, including those on the local, state, and federal level; but good advice can be hard to find, and misinformation could lead to the end of your career as a contractor.
