887 visa pay and super. What do immigration checks

Recommended Posts

Hi, I got few concerns I am going to apply for 887 visa. I work for small family business and the owner does my pay. He is too busy managing whole business. So he forgets to do my pay on time and have also paid my super late. I want to know would there be any issue with immigration for these two reasons. Your replies would be much appreciated.

I talked to my employer he said according to contract he can pay any day practical. But I am little worried about my super being paid late.

Most current payroll systems are linked to the ATO so late or non payments are very obvious.

Most modern awards set out the required pay dates, e.g. clerk's award states that in case employees are paid monthly, then the payment must be made 2 weeks in advance and 2 weeks in arrears (so basically you must be paid in the middle of the month).  So depending on what award your position may fall into, your boss may not be able to pay "any day practical". Also, laws set out when Super contributions must be made.  

I don't know if Immigration will take any issue with your employer not following legal requirements to pay your salary and super on time, but it would certainly be to his advantage to do so in case FairWork ever investigates the issue.
