My employer is arguing that becuase there are two persons named on my residential tenancy agreement that I can only claim for 50% of the rent, meaning that I am only getting the benefit of 25% of the rent salary sacrificed. This is becuase they read the legislation as an employee benefit and only one of the persons listed is the employee and that they are responsible for 50% of the rent. I disagree and used a single income household as an example. I suggested that a stat dec to say what percentage of the rent I was responsbile for or that the other party on the lease would not be using this benefit would suffice but they disagree. What is the correct answer?
