Owners, Monitors, and Contractors

There should be a statement to the contractors or in the regs, what should a contractor do if they are hired by the owner, only to find out the owner refuses to hire and/or pay a monitor.  The owner is given notice, the contractor gets the forms, the contractor shows up only to find no monitor has actually been hired.  Since the owner is under obligation to hire the monitor, is the contractor under obligation to report when no monitor is hired (or shows up) and could the contractor lose their license if they proceed with no monitor or if they do not proceed, but do not notify the Commonwealth?  I can see some contractors ending up between the old rock and a hard place.
