Queensland, South Australia and Victoria have recently introduced laws requiring businesses ‘providing labour’ to other businesses to be licensed in certain circumstances. However each of the States has different rules which is causing some confusion, particularly with businesses operating in multiple states.

Underpayment of wages claims are common, mainly from apprentices who are often paid strictly against award terms - which can be complex to interpret. We've noticed an increase in wage underpayment claims of late - particularly as apprentices are more informed of wage increases.

Days out from the EOFY here's another important tip from our partners at Energy Super...

Get Super Money from the Government: ​​Did you know the Government can actually chip in up to $500 to your superannuation savings? You just need to contribute up to $1,000 extra into your super from your take-home pay and meet some eligibility criteria. It’s called the Government Co-contribution and it’s pretty handy for low-income earners keen to boost their super. For this financial year, you need to earn $36,813 or under to get the full amount. The co-contribution reduces progressively as your income rises, and cuts out completely at $51,813. Your super fund needs to receive the contribution before 30 June, so be quick.

Here's an EOFY Tip from our partners at Energy Super...

Make a spouse contribution: If your spouse earns less than $40,000, you can contribute to their super and claim a tax offset. The maximum offset of $540 is available if your spouse earned less than $37,000 this financial year; it reduces for income above that amount and completely phases out when your spouse’s income reaches $40,000. Pretty handy if your spouse has taken time out of the workforce and could do with a super boost. Your super fund needs to receive the contribution before 30 June, so be quick.
