I work as a subcontractor for a contractor. My contract is up for renewal. There is a term I would like to change. The term states that me getting paid is contingent on him getting paid. I don't think this is fair because hypothetically he could do something negligent and not care about getting paid, then he's off the hook for paying me. (I asked the question on the Law version of the site)
How is this typically handled? I can see why he would want to get paid first before paying me. I was thinking our contract would state "Contractor will invoice client at least once a month, and upon receiving pay will pay subcontractor within 30 days".
