Who is responsible for the salaries of workmen employed by a sub-contractor?

The main contractor (or principal) is jointly and severally responsible, together with the sub-contractor, for the salary of workmen employed by the sub-contractor.

However, the main contractor is not liable for more than the salary earned in 1 month.

Workmen who want to lodge a claim for unpaid salary must do so within 60 days from when the salary was due.
