    If the business can't pay then it's insolvent (can't pay its bills) so the safety net provisions should kick in for you.

    Partnerships are tricky for the owners -- a principle called joint and several liability -- which might mean the owners have to liquidate the partnership to avoid any debts following them around like a bad smell.
    Even if you end the partnership the debts still follow them around, the liability you refer to means any one partner can be sued for the lot.

    can't suggest any work possibilities, sorry

    but if the partners do call it quits, this may help to tide you over https://employment.gov.au/fair-entit...-guarantee-feg
    Does this work if they were registered as a company?

    registration as a company should make the process easier.

    I suggest you keep a record of the days you are directed not to work (and what the direction was) and if the day is paid (= annual leave) or unpaid (which might translate into paid leave if you need to lodge a claim)
    regards from Canada

    Should have given an update. The partnership / company was dissolved just ovet a week ago.

    On the Tuesay night I recieved a call not to come in the next day as ine of the bosses (C...) was tied up with the accountant that day.

    Wednesday night I recieved a similar call sayig prob mo work tilk Monday.

    Over the weekend wad told to meet Monday and all would be explained.

    Monday met on a job to be told would no longet be going to that Job as it was tied up with the ex partner. Told that Horsham Building and Renovation Supplies would no longer be paying my wages. Cant remember the exact words but to the effect that the company no longer exists.

    That said I have unpaid holiday pay, 9 hours sick pay i was never paid and i presume some orher entitlements. I still have not recieved a group certificate and dont kow if they have been paying my taxes.

    So the up shot. 'C' had offered me casual work on a need basis. The pay when you factor in being a contractor over being on wages means I am on 1/2 pay if I accept his offer.

    Will be seriously looking at working for myself and watching the net for any other jobs that may be out there.

    Thanks for all the info you have shared. I am trying to negotiate what is owed and if this fails will have to look at other avenues.

    Hmm, dodgy bros inc. As for working for yourself you will need a valid license, insurances, etc. You will leave yourself open to litigation if you aren't licensed, be very careful Dave.

    Also check on whether super has been paid, that is usually the first thing that goes by the wayside

    Got a good tag line for any advertising

    "I fix what others can't"

    You have the ability to work and think outside the normal, an admirable trait for a handy man

    Doesn't matter, the ATO will credit you for PAYG tax even if it hasn't been paid by the Company. The ATO is not able to tell you if it has been paid for privacy reasons. Contact you superfund though to see what has gone in, you can get the ATO to chase this up although you may be out of luck on that one.
