    Default Outside chance

    G'day Everyone

    Just a bit of an outside chance. Looks like my current job is coming to an end. The business partners are parting ways and closing up shop. I could have as little as two weeks work.

    Today i have been asked to take a day off. Though on wages I am sure it is leave with out pay.

    Does anyone happen to know of some work in Horsham. Happy to do anything but need a little more than a rock bottom base pay.

    Regards

    Bummer, if you have the required licenses, try sub contracting with the bigger project builders

    How long since they lapsed? It would be easier to get your supervisors license again but the builders one would be harder. Average supervisors salary in project homes about $90k + car + phone + laptop

    Inquire about getting your supervisors license again, its worth it, lots of jobs for hands on supervisors especially in extension work and restoration which you have an eye for

    Try Tabma or HIA as I know with Tabma that you can look at what jobs are available. Good luck with finding a job.

    Hi Dave
    bummer.
    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

    Thanks ian. Looking it up now. Not sure if i fit. Looks like liquidation and bankrupcy. They have just ceased trading so not sure if that applies but will keep reading.

    Dave

    you should have some entitlement to some form of severance pay.
    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.
