Deadline for payment of entitlements on termination clarified

The General Retail Industry Award 2010 has been varied to clearly state that wages and entitlements due on the termination of employment must be paid within 7 days from the date of termination.

Newsagents should exercise care as other forms of legislation such as long service leave may require that those entitlements are due within a lesser period. NANA has created a new ‘Conditions of Employment Guide Payment on Termination of Employment’ covering the points that apply.
