Beefed Up Construction Laws in WA to protect Subcontractors

The complaints of subcontractors that aren’t being paid or are being paid late by big construction companies have been heard and the WA government has beefed up laws to protect these subcontractors.

Under the law large construction companies that don’t pay subcontractors will be banned from applying for government work.

A new code of conduct applies to the building and construction industry.

Changes are aimed at supporting small business, help prohibit anti-competitive behaviour such as price fixing and sham contracting.
