Unpaid superannuation can cost workers big time.
Not only does the employee not get the money from regular contributions, but they also lose out on the interest that the money would be making if it was in their account.
Over time, this can make an enormous difference to the balance of someone’s superannuation account.
An employer has to pay super contributions if you are:
- 18 years old or over and are paid at least $450 before tax in salary or wages in a calendar month
- under 18 years old, work more than 30 hours per week and are paid at least $450 in salary or wages before tax in a calendar month.
It doesn’t matter if you work part time, full time or casual.
You may also be eligible for super if you’re a contractor working and being paid primarily for labour.
If you are covered by a modern award, we can help you recover unpaid super by taking immediate legal action on your behalf.
In addition, we can also help you recover any interest or gains on your super that you have missed out on.
