I have been employed as a contractor and have been contracting my hours only to this one employer for 11years.I have completed the ATO questionnaire as to whether I am an employee. the answere is yes. however my employer has never paid superannuation or any other entitlemants. I do have an ABN number and would submit an invoice 2 weekly for pay. I was never given a pay slip or any information.The pay was banked into my account. my question is should this employer be paying superannuation or LSL.
I am dying of cancer and unable to work
I have attempted to contact the ATO but cannot get through .I am not sure what section to request if I get through.
The employer states he employed as a contractor.could the tax dept clarify this.?would they have the information.
should I write to ATO.
We seem to be going around in circles.
