California construction law involves the application of several different areas of law to specific issues and problems that arise in connection with developers and builder contracting. The state’s laws do not just require that contractors be licensed, but that they be bonded and have worker’s compensation insurance for employees, if any. Contractors, whether general, specialty, engineering or architectural, often must also deal with environmental and local permitting issues.
