AG Nessel Reminds Michiganders to Verify Licenses Before Hiring for Projects
May 10, 2021
LANSING - Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is once again reinforcing her commitment to educating Michiganders by sharing another Consumer Protection video.
The latest video focuses on hiring out work for home projects, which can lead to being scammed if you don't properly research the workers you're hiring.
"For any home project, skilled workers are required to be licensed by the state," said Nessel. "An unlicensed skilled worker may not have proper training or may not know the latest standards to ensure their work is dependable and safe for you and your family, so it's imperative you do your homework by checking if someone is properly licensed before you hire them."
You can verify a license by visiting LARA's website. The verification tool is categorized by different industries to help narrow your search.
This video is part of a series of informative and humorous videos focused on consumer protection.
Last month, Nessel reminded people to vet their tax preparers. She also shared tips to spot COVID-related scams.
The videos are posted periodically on the Department's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
