Workcover Payment Through Wages
We are a Victorian organisation and have an employee on workcover and I am looking at setting up 'Workcover' as a payment through our Reckon payroll system:
(1) Is it to be treated as Wages from our perspective (as an employer)?
(2) Is it to be treated as a Gross Payment from the employee's perspective i.e. amount appear under the Gross Wages section of the Individuals Payment Summary?
(3) Is it subject to PAYG Tax?
(4) Is Annual Leave and Personal Leave to be accrued on Workcover Hours?(5) Is it correct that Superannuation isn't payable on Workcover?
