The Environment and Planning Committee is currently conducting an inquiry into employers and contractors who refuse to pay their sub-contractors for completed works. The Committee will examine the mechanisms currently in place for sub-contractors to secure payments, along with opportunities for improvements in the space. While the Committee will be looking to improve the overall framework around subcontractor payments, it will not be looking to resolve individual matters.
That this House refers an inquiry into employers and contractors who refuse to pay their subcontractors for completed works to the Environment and Planning Standing Committee for consideration and report no later than 31 December 2023.
