The term ‘employer delay’ is commonly used to describe any delay caused by an employer risk event (an event or cause of delay or disruption which under the contract is at the risk and responsibility of the Employer).
- Employer delay to progress, which is a delay that will merely cause delay to the contractor’s progress without causing a contract completion date to be missed.
- Employer delay to completion, which is a delay that will cause a contract completion date to be missed.
