Hello
Your employer needs to pay you what work!
You need to be provided with payslips and the like, tax payable, super etc.
If they do not attend to this, it is illegal!
Speak with them, demand adherence to the above and file a claim to Fair Work Australia should they not act.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
