11 Apr 2019 New laws to improve super guarantee compliance
A number of measures have been enacted in an effort to protect the super entitlements of employees.
In summary, from April 2019:
- employers who feel they could benefit from more knowledge in relation to their super obligation will have access to a new, free, online education course (and assessment) that they can complete at a time that suits them.
- employers who are not meeting their SG obligations may be directed to complete the course.
- business owners/directors may be held personally liable for amounts owing through Director Penalty Notices and security deposits.
- we can provide employees with information regarding the non-payment of SG by employers, including what actions we are taking to recover the outstanding amounts.More information can be found here.
