Review of Security of Payment Laws
4 April 2017
Open discussion with John Murray AM
Tuesday 4 April, Melbourne
John Murray AM is assisting in the Australian Government review of the security of payment (SoP) laws in the building and construction industry operating throughout Australia. The terms of reference of the review are summarised as follows:
- to examine security of payment legislation of all jurisdictions to identify areas of best practice for the construction industry;
- to consult with business, governments, unions and interested parties and the Security of Payments Working Group;
- to consider how to prevent various types of contractual clauses that restrict contractors in the construction industry from obtaining payments for work that has been completed.
Do not miss this unique opportunity to voice your opinion in an open discussion with John Murray and contribute to potential changes to the SoP legislation within the construction industry.
Registrants will be provided with a copy of the ‘Issues Paper’ for preliminary reading.
