Resignation of Nigel Hadgkiss, Australian Building and Construction Commissioner

"The Australian Industry Group (Ai Group) expresses its appreciation for the very important role that Mr Nigel Hadgkiss has played in restoring the rule of law in the building and construction industry. Mr Hadgkiss has worked tirelessly, fearlessly and effectively over a long time to stamp out unlawful conduct in the construction industry," Australian Industry Group Chief Executive, Innes Willox, said today. 

"Under the leadership of Mr Hadgkiss, substantial progress has been made but there is still a lot of work to be done. This is highlighted by the $1 million in fines that were imposed by the Federal Court today on the CFMEU and its officials for unlawful conduct on the Barangaroo site in Sydney.

"We wish Mr Hadgkiss a well-deserved, long and happy retirement,” said Mr Willox.
