ABCC Deputy Commissioner Cathy Cato and other construction and small business regulators will next week host a free information night in Yamba aimed at assisting northern NSW commercial subcontractors secure their payments.

There are currently about 828 contractors and subcontractors working on the $4.3 billion Pacific Highway Upgrade project whose livelihoods will benefit from the information provided on the night.

The event kicks off a week long compliance campaign from 15-19 October that will see ABCC officers talk to contractors in the area about their security of payment rights and obligations.

Representatives from NSW Small Business Commissioner, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and NSW Fair Trading will also be in attendance.

Subcontractors concerned about their payments are encouraged to visit the ABCC website at abcc.gov.au/securityofpayment.
