Each year in Australia, employers are failing to pay billions of dollars in superannuation to their workers yet we don’t hear much about this.

One of the Government’s best kept secrets is their continual denial of increasing the Super Guarantee (SG).
You would be angry if you weren’t paid your wages on time – so why wouldn’t you be upset over your missing superannuation?Right now 1 in 3 Australian workers who are eligible to receive super payments are missing out on what they’re entitled to with a total cost of almost $6 billion per year and growing.
