Q. How does endorsement  CG 22 94 Exclusion – Damage To Work Performed By reginaSubcontractors On Your Behalf change my contractors policy?

A. This endorsement was introduced by ISO along with the 10-01 edition of the CGL policy and is now becoming widely used by insurers that write general contracting risks. It eliminates the subcontractor exception under Exclusion L and thus eliminates coverage for virtually any claim involving damage to a general contractor’s completed work.

Without the endorsement, a general contractor is covered for damage to completed work if the work was performed by a subcontractor or the work out of which the damage arises was performed by a subcontractor.

If you see this endorsement on a policy covering a general contractor, you owe it to the insured (and your E&O carrier) to make a special effort to disclose the existence and importance of this coverage restriction.

    If the GC required insurance from all their Subcontractors (not Independent Contractors, AKA 1099 Employees) wouldn’t that give back the coverage for the completed work?
