I am a commercial contractor and the general contractor or the owner has told me to go ahead with work that is not part of the contract and assured me that I would be paid. Is this ok?

This could be a problem. Such work generally requires what is called a "change order." Many contracts require that a change order be in writing. Without the written assurance from the owner and the general contractor that you will be paid for this additional work, there is no guarantee that you will ever get your money. It is best to get a written assurance before you begin such work.
