Unfair dismissal salary cap

Posted by Anna Ford on 18 Jul 2011

As at 1 July 2011 – the cap has increased to $118,100 (from $113,800).


What does this mean??


If you earn over $118,100 (base salary and other guaranteed payments, but excluding 9% super and “at risk” commissions, bonuses or other incentives) and you are not covered by a modern award or enterprise agreement – you cannot bring an unfair dismissal claim.


So remember - it’s really important to calculate how much your employees are earning from 1 July 2011 - as it could affect their unfair dismissal rights as well as their workplace entitlements!!!!
