Thank you for your question. To Introduce myself I am a sydney based Solicitor and will do my best to provide you with relevant information to assist you.
I received a letter by mistake from the real estate company who manages the property that we rent. They have put it on the market for re-leasing because of issues that we have not fulfilled in our contract.
I would prefer to resign and get full payments before the "proverbial" hits the fan.
I do not have any other options in my field at present - which is Print manufacturing. The industry is shrinking rapidly.
So, even if they go into liquidation, and they cannot pay their staff, there is a possibility to go to GEERS and get paid by the government?
Is there a chance to be paid out in full, if - for instance the creditors handling the liquidation give staff none of their entitlements?
Thank you for your assistance. It has been most helpful.
I feel that the owners are beyond trust now. I manage this site (Perth),
and they operate a hub from QLD.
They have not even made me aware of this situation with the Real estate agent.
I will do as you say and investigate GEERS.
If I have assisted please do not forget to leave me with positive feedback.
