Mississippi Contractor License Law Update

Gain an understanding of the essentials of proper contractor licensure in Mississippi.

Proper licensure is an important but confusing part of the construction industry. Contractors that fail to obtain proper certification from the Mississippi Board of Contractors risk losing out on payment as well as a range of civil, administrative, and potentially criminal penalties. This topic will cover all the essentials of proper contractor licensure in Mississippi--who needs a license and when, how to obtain and maintain certification, what to do if you or another contractor fails to obtain or maintain their license and incurs penalties. This material will also review the state of Mississippi's reciprocity agreements with the licensing boards of other states to help contractors avoid unnecessary expense and avoidable problems. Lastly and most importantly, the content will review current issues in Mississippi licensure law. Staying on top of updates and changes in the relevant law is the single best way to avoid serious problems and ensure that contractors are able to legally practice their profession successfully.
