Unpaid super - the silent wage theft



Wage theft has dominated the news cycle in recent months – but that’s not the only scandal taking place in some workplaces across Australia.

Employers are generally only required to pay super on a quarterly basis, and there is little to no regulation or consequence of these payments being followed up.

And you might not even know you’re being underpaid. Your payslip may indicate that you have been paid superannuation, but that does not mean the money has entered your super account.

The ACTU is calling on the Government to make super payable on payday. You should be able to trust your payslip – and you shouldn’t have to question the integrity of your boss.

Unpaid Super is a national issue that affects nearly 1 in 3 Australians. You can see the full report on unpaid super here.
