    Post On The Work

    mountainview.gov/civica/filebank/blobdload.asp?BlobID=2295

    "Where a portion of the Work which has been subcontracted by the
    Contractor is not being prosecuted in a manner satisfactory to the City, the
    subcontractor shall be removed immediately on the written direction of the Engineer
    and shall not again be employed on the Work."

    Shouldn't it be "employed in the work"?

    No; it's fine as it is.

    Re: On The Work

    If anybody is wondering why common nouns like work, contractor, city and engineer are capitalised, it's because this is part of a formal contract written in legalese*.

    The said words will have been defined in a preamble to the contract and are capitalised each time they are mentioned.
