If you are looking for information on how to work out what your entitlements on termination are, please see our blog post:
It can be very upsetting when your employer has not paid your termination entitlements, such as notice, redundancy pay or accrued leave. There can be a number of reasons for this, including:
a. your employer refuses to pay those entitlements;
b. your employer denies that you have those entitlements;
c. your employer has paid part but not all of your entitlements;
d. your employer does not have the money to pay your entitlements; and
e. your employer is bankrupt.
The options available to you depend on why your employer has not paid:
a. you may be able to make a FEG (fair entitlements guarantee) claim;
b. the FWO (Fair Work Ombudsman) may be able to assist you; or
c. you may need a lawyer to help you recover your entitlements.
If you haven’t been paid some or all of your entitlements, please give us a call on (03) 5722 4681 to discuss whether we can help you.
