If you work in the building and construction industry, you may be able to get help to recover payments from a hirer through security of payments laws.

In most states and territories, these laws provide a dispute resolution mechanism for building and construction contractors who are owed progress payments.

You can use this system if you have a verbal or written contract. You will be covered by the law of the state or territory in which the work is done.
