Can an employer “contract out” their obligation to pay you super?
I’m pretty sure the answer to this is “no” but I can’t find anywhere on the ATO webiste that spells this out.
Does anyone know where I can find this information on the ATO website?
Employers have to pay SG if they do not meet minimum super contributions on time.
There are exemptions for minors and earnings under $450 per month.
Law and interprettion should be read for what you must do, or what you can do.
If a law is silent on contracting out of an obligation, that means you cannot do it.
They do not have to provide a list af all the things that you cannot do, because that list would be infinitely long.
