Work­ers los­ing out on su­per

Mercury (Hobart) - - BUSINESS -

EM­PLOY­ERS are short-chang­ing one in three work­ers on their su­per­an­nu­a­tion, and the em­ploy­ees are miss­ing out on a com­bined $6 bil­lion a year, a fed­eral par­lia­men­tary in­quiry has heard.

In­dus­try Su­per Aus­tralia chief Bernie Dean said a third of Aus­tralians saw su­per recorded on their pay slips did not get it.

Mr Dean told the in­quiry that en­sur­ing su­per was paid on pay­day was a “no-brainer” and called on the gov­ern­ment to make it manda­tory.

“The dol­lar fig­ures Aus­tralians are miss­ing out on are too large to ig­nore,” he said.
