Building Construction Awards Advice For Employers

  • As an employer in Australia’s building and construction industry, it’s essential to understand and comply with the various awards that may apply to your business.
  • Awards are legal documents that outline the minimum entitlements and conditions of employment for workers in a particular industry or occupation.
  • They cover things like wages, leave entitlements, and working hours.
    Determining the awards that align with your business’ needs could be challenging.
  • However, it’s crucial to do it correctly because failure to comply with awards may result in hefty fines and legal action.
  • The Building and Construction Industry Awards differ significantly from the community standard Modern Awards with industry-specific arrangements, conditions, and allowances.
  • The Building and Construction Industry Awards covering residential, non-residential, commercial, Onsite, Offsite, Plumbing and Fire Sprinkler Awards are quite complex.  With Inclement Weather provisions, Industry Specific notices, or Redundancy provisions, employers need specialist advice to ensure compliance.
  • The  Industry Awards cover many Trades including carpentry, plumbing, tilers, bricklayers, labourers, formworkers, steel fixers, concreting, blockwork, plastering, and much more.
