looks like it's time to lodge a claim with Horsham Building and Renovation Supplies for your entitlements.
unpaid sick leave,
pay in lieu of notice,
travel expenses to the job on Monday,
wages for the days you were directed not to come in
don't be shy with your claim or settle for less than 100%
By the sound of things, there's no money left in the company so it'll be I and other tax payers footing the bill.
Re-read the stuff on Fair Entitlements on the process you need to follow.
I'm guessing that "C's" accountant is acting as the liquidator.
Don't worry about the missing Group Certificate or unpaid PAYE tax, that's a problem for the business and the ATO.
a common reason for a business going bust is the business doesn't have the cash needed to pay the ATO.
However, a call to the ATO to ask what should you do in respect to your tax return and super contributions would be well worthwhile.
If the other partner has taken over the jobs, is there a possibility of working for that partner?

'C' is the one who is still taking on jobs and wants me to work for nix.
There is work and its better than the doll and better than nothing but Im worth more.

Tell him you'll work for him once all your back pay, redundancy etc have been paid up. If he's expecting you to work for under the minimum wage, go to the authorities and dob him in. Once all your entitlements have been paid and he's expecting you to work for almost nix, tell him to stick it where the sun don't shine, and do handyman work like someone else suggested, you get paid at the end of the job/day, and you're home with the littlies.

Dave, you know the wrong things that you were expected to turn a blind eye to when they were a partnership, guess what, leopards don't change their spots, their both tarred with the same brush, 'C's' offer tells you all this. Do what ever it takes to get your entitlements and in the meantime get your own license in order and be your own master or go as a subby for one of the bigger project builders till you get on your feet a bit more, heaven knows, you need a better run than you have had.
I think you will find that everything is a $2 company and everything is in someone else's name and there is nothing you can do about it.The person who never made a mistake never made anything

Just wondering how things are panning out for you

Interesting to say the least. 'C' had a go at me today because i dared question him. Doing a bathroom reno and he gave me silicon to waterproof the vilaboard behind a shower. He wanted me to just run a bead down the internals and not even tape any of the joints to the new boards.
I happen to know what he quoted and rough expenditure. Over and above all expenses including wages he stands to make 2.5 K maybe 3. When i said to his wife that he lied about not making mory on the job and there should be waterproofing before the tiling is done he went off in major way.
Yes Im looking at going alone.

Get out before you are made the scapegoat. Tell the client to get inspectors to have a look at the job before its too late or dob him in yourself. He will lie and say you didn't do as you were instructed. He's lying to the client, to his wife and giving the industry a bad name. Don't forget the photos !The person who never made a mistake never made anything

My stand today led to waterproofing being delivered. I let the client know that it should be done and that I may not be back due to standing up for what was right. I got a foul reception from 'C' but respect and appreciation from the client.
They even rung me after work to see what went down after I saw my boss at the end of the day. I will get excellent word of mouth from them

Dave, if the partnership has been dissolved and one partner is continuing on, it means his income has just increased by 100%. How come he is offering reduced wages?
These guys sound pretty dodgy to me. If you have been working on these jobs alone, you stand a good chance of being made a scapegoat for dodgy work practices should and when they arise. Half pay is fine....for half the work. When a boss expects you to work for less (half), he has no respect for you. He won't care less what position he places you in, provided he's OK.
Time to take action and hit the frogandtoad.
Good luck. Shame you're are not up our way, I could keep you busy for a while.
