The Construction Industry Amendment (Protecting Witnesses) Bill 2015 amends the Fair Work (Building Industry) Act 2012 to extend the period where the Fair Work Building Industry Inspectorate Director can apply to a nominated Administrative Appeals Tribunal presidential member for an examination notice, by two years.

The current Director’s capacity to act in this role will expire May 31, 2015.
