Workers losing out on super
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.
