Employment Minister Michaelia Cash has defended the appointment of Nigel Hadgkiss as the head of the Australian Building & Construction Commission in December 2016. Cash says she became aware of the ACTU’s allegations against Hadgkiss in October, but she argues that he only admitted to breaching the Fair Work Act when he resigned on 13 September 2017. Cash also argues that Hadgkiss automatically became head of the ABCC when it was reinstated, as he held the same role at the Fair Work Building & Construction Inspectorate. However, ACTU president Ged Kearney says Cash’s position is untenable and she should also resign.
