It is well known that payment bonds are required by federal law on US government construction projects (known as the Miller Act), and by virtually every state for local state or municipal public projects (colloquially referred to as the “Little Miller Act”), specifically to assure payment to subcontractors and material suppliers who are unpaid for their labor and materials furnished. In recent years, many private owners, from shopping malls to office buildings and multi-family residences, have required that payment bonds be provided as well. If you are working on a public or private construction project and have not been paid, a payment bond claim and a subsequent lawsuit to enforce the claim is an important tool to ensuring payment. But, like most things in the law, the timing and the format of the claim are of critical importance.
