If you're a contractor, you may still be entitled to super from your employer.

If you’re a contractor paid wholly or principally for your labour, you’re considered an employee for super purposes and entitled to super guarantee contributions under the same rules as employees.

A contract may be considered ‘wholly or principally for labour’ if:

- you’re paid wholly or principally for your personal labour and skills

- you perform the contract work personally

- you’re paid for hours worked, rather than to achieve a result.

For super to apply, the contract must be "directly between you and your employer". It can’t be through another person or through a company, trust or partnership.

If you would like to discuss about your super entitlements, please contact us.
