Rely on Australia’s building industry experts for all your contract and compliance needs

As a business owner, guidance on your contract and compliance obligations is something you hope you’ll never need – but unfortunately it's often inevitable that one day you will.

HIA’s expert workplace advisors can offer you bespoke support to help you navigate the maze of compliance in the building industry. We'll ensure you have the most up-to-date and relevant information and advice to effectively run your business.

Workplace Services: Keep your finger on the pulse

With over 70 years’ experience as Australia’s national home building association, HIA workplace advisors can provide information and information and guidance to help you stay aware, stay compliant, manage expectations and resolve building disputes.

We can help you with:

  • Managing your business and employees: Running a successful home building business and executing smooth and compliant projects can often feel like a juggling act. HIA can help you navigate regulatory requirements with handy tips and templates.
  • Compliance information: Constantly evolving laws and regulations can lead to roadblocks at crucial moments in your project timeline. Keep on top of your contracts, compliance, IR and HR obligations with our handy tips and guides.
  • Modern Awards – We’ll keep you abreast of awards in the building and construction industry and register you for automatic award updates, via email or direct mail.
  • Employment information – Understand which award, pay rates, employment conditions, sick leave, RDOs and allowances apply in your circumstances.
  • Workplace relationships – You want to enhance the productivity and performance of your team, which may require engaging and dismissing employees. We can provide you with the insights and advice you need to determine your next move.
  • Building dispute resolution – Our HIA experts can help you resolve disputes when problems arise with a supplier, team member or client.
  • Ongoing regulatory obligations – It may have been a while since you last reviewed your construction contracts, but a quick fix isn’t always the best solution. Understanding the ever-changing ins and outs of residential or domestic building laws, licensing, tax, superannuation and employee obligations will put your business on the front foot.
  • Specialist help – HIA can provide you with referrals to accredited specialists such as external lawyers, accountants and tax advisors.


I've been an HIA member for over five years and they recently provided advice on a legislative matter and helped me produce a comprehensive, evidence-based argument. I'm pleased to say that the matter has since been resolved in my favour, thanks to the valuable information and advice from HIA.
