Appealing Corporation's decisions

Workers can appeal to the independent Building and Construction Industry Long Service Payments Committee against certain decisions made by the Corporation relating to:

  • Refusal of a worker registration
  • Cancellation of a worker registration
  • Refusal of service credits after a worker's registration date

The Building and Construction Industry Long Service Payments Committee has the authority to confirm or overrule certain decisions made by the Corporation.

Committee members are representatives of employers and unions in the building and construction industry in NSW and are appointed by the Minister for Industrial Relations.

The Committee will review the information used by the Corporation when making the original decision and the information provided in the appeal. 

To lodge an appeal, a worker must first contact the Committee Secretary on 13 14 41 as soon as possible after they are advised of the decision. 

  • An appeal must be lodge within 42 days of the date of notification of the decision. Appeals lodged outside the 42 day period cannot be accepted.
  • The Committee secretary will provide the worker with an appeal form and information about the appeal process.
  • Any appeal must address the Corporation's reasons for its decision and demonstrate where the decision may be incorrect because the information used has not been interpreted correctly.
  • An appeal should have documents to support the claim that the Corporation’s decision was incorrect. This could be work diaries, a letter from the employer detailing the work you performed and the period of employment, a position description, references, statutory declarations, invoices showing the work performed etc.
