Super changes to protect employees’ entitlements

Several revisions from the Treasury Laws Amendment (2018 Measures No.4) Bill 2018 took effect from 1 April 2019. These measures are designed to help reduce the super guarantee (SG) gap, protect employees’ super entitlements and strengthen the ATO’s ability to recover unpaid super.

Changes to disclosure laws will now allow the ATO to disclose information to employees about an employers’ failure to meet SG obligations. This will also allow for the ATO to reveal their processes involved in retrieving these amounts.

Additionally, a free voluntary online education course is now available to help employers understand and meet SG obligations. Education directions permit the ATO to instruct employers who don’t meet their SG obligations to complete the online education course, which includes an assessment element.

Individuals are encouraged to notify the ATO of non-complying employers. If your employer is approachable, you could make them aware of the online course and its benefits prior to the ATO contacting them and directing them to complete it.
