I have a friend who works in the tourism industry in QLD. She is a contractor but i believe she is and has been an employee for superannuation purposes for the past 2 years . As she only works for the one company.
The company has just told her that they will in fact start to pay superannuation for her. But they have told her it will only be on her base wage. Her base wage is 120 dollars but she makes more than that with commission for whatever sales she makes. She gets from 0 to 150 dollars in commission on top of her base wage daily. Plus more on really good days. I am wondering if they should be paying her super on the commission as well.
Also, because she has worked for the same company for a couple of years now. Is she entitled to superannuation for those previous 2 years.
