Getting paid correctly is central to fair work practices.
Most workers are paid exclusively on the basis of agreed weekly wages or a salary. However, many workers are entitled to additional payments such as:
- Non discretionary bonuses;
- Overtime payments, penalty rates, loadings and allowances; and
Failure to pay workers their entitlements is a common cause of dispute between workers and employers.
Issues can also arise when an employer has overpaid an employee and seeks to recover the overpayment.
