The amount of assistance that applicants can receive under the FEG is calculated on the basis of the conditions under which they were employed (for example. B, the professional bonus, the collective agreement, the employment contract, etc.). In deciding to allocate funds, the Ministry will provide the following information on the following issues: (July 6, 2015) As of July 1, 2015, the Ministry of Labour will receive applications for funding from the Australian Government`s Fair Entitlements Guarante program. Below is a copy of FACT SHEET for the Guarantee Fair Entitlement Recovery Program. The amount of assistance to which a worker may be eligible is determined by the terms of the “government instrument,” i.e. a written law, a written decision or a written decision, a legislative act or a written agreement (. B for example, enterprise prices, collective agreement, employment contract). The FEG Act interacts in some areas with the Fair Work Act (“FWA”), including national employment standards, where redundancy contracts can remain silent. Where possible, the FWA defines workers who are not entitled to redundancy, in particular the small business exemption, which applies to companies employing less than 15 employees. However, the calculation of the number of people employed is governed by the FWA`s consolidation rules and employees of a related company can be taken into account. The FEG recovery plan is managed by the Department of Employment (“Department”) to fund measures that will improve the recovery of amounts advanced under the FEG.
The measures that the department may consider funding, but are not limited to: by cynical reader, this is an anti-Phoenix measure aimed at limiting the operation of the FEG system. It is recalled that, in accordance with Section 596AB of the Act, entering into agreements or transactions to avoid workers` rights is a criminal offence. If your application is accepted, you will need to enter into a funding agreement with the department. The funding agreement defines how the department will pay and how the funds recovered will be used.

Applications for funding can be submitted and returned by filling out the funding application form available on the FEG website: progress quickly through 2015 and the cost of the FEG averaged $204.1 million per year in the four years to June 2014. recoveries averaged $23.6 million per year over the same period. Estimated costs for GEERS and FEG for 2012-13 were $304 million.
The 2015-16 federal budget included $11.5 million over two years starting July 1, 2015 for the FEGRP, to enable the DOE to more actively pursue its interests as creditors for feg advances. The FEGRP will provide resources to implement measures such as unfair preferences or non-commercial transaction credits and non-commercial transactions. A draft funding agreement will be available if your application is accepted. The Department is not required to pay amounts until the funding agreement has been concluded and only provides in accordance with the funding agreement. Liquidators of insolvent companies in which employment fees have been paid under the FEG may apply for funding if: The current procedure requires employees to submit their applications to DOE, preferably via an online form.
