Security of payment

Queenslanders who work in our building and construction industry make an invaluable contribution to our communities and the economic prosperity of our state. They deserve to be paid for the work they do.

The Building Industry Fairness Reforms will give them confidence that this will happen. The Building Industry Fairness (Security of Payment) Act 2017 commenced on 10 November 2017 to support these reforms.

Read about changes we’re making to protect workers’ payments below.

For information about how to comply with these changes, see the Queensland Building Construction Commission website.
