Worried you’re missing part of your refund? Remember, the low and middle income tax offset isn’t a refund on its own – it’s used to offset (or reduce) the amount of tax you pay. The offset amount you may be entitled to is automatically applied and could range between $255-$1080, depending on things like your taxable income and how much tax you’ve paid.

Re: Is it legal for employer to refuse paying super in the casual contract

Hi,

 

I've worked for my previous employer for a year in a casual position with temp partner visa.

I earn more than $450 a month from them and ATO's tool on Superannuation Eligibility says I'm eligible for it. However my employer refused to pay my super and even included "this offer does not include superannuation" in the contract. I want to know does this sentence in my contract affects my eligibility of getting my super back? What can I do in this situation to get my super from my previous employers?

 

Regards,

Suzy

It doesn't matter whether you have a full time, part-time or casual job, if you're over 18 and you earn more than $450 (before tax) in a calendar month, your employer should pay super contributions for you.

No  -  employer cannot contract out of a statutory obligation  -  Law 101.

 

What can I do in this situation to get my super from my previous employers?
