The federal government's determination to pursue a market solution not only jeopardises Virgin employees' jobs, it flies in the face of finding an ecological solution to long-distance travel, argues Jim McIlroy.
Commonwealth Bank to repay superannuation
The Commonwealth Bank (CBA) has agreed to repay employer superannuation to more than 7000 part-time workers that was not applied to overtime over the past eight years.
The CBA will repay the superannuation to all part-time workers since 2009, including those who have switched to full-time positions or have since left the bank. The average payment is $180 a year.
The CBA maintains it was not breaking the law by only paying superannuation on ordinary hours to part-time staff rather than extra hours or overtime.
