Genuine redundancy and early retirement at termination – alignment with Pension age
Termination Wizard – genuine redundancy/early retirement – update in retirement age to 67 years (up from 65 years).
Note: An employee receiving a genuine redundancy payment must, at the time of dismissal, not have reached the pension age. Pension Age is 67 years for employees born after 01/01/1957, 66 years and 6 months for employees born between 01/07/1955 to 31/12/1956, 66 years for employees born between 01/01/1954 to 30/06/1955. Employee born before 1954 cannot receive genuine redundancy payment. Also check what the compulsory age for the particular position is, for example, if an employee in a particular position is required to retire at age 60, then the person can only receive a genuine redundancy payment if he or she is less than 60 years old when the dismissal occurs.
Housecleaning – removal of EFT Audit Non-bank records
Enhancement to the housecleaning process to ensure removal of all EFT bank records including non-bank records.
Known issues reported in this release
ETP duplication in STP and ATO Payment Summary reporting (ADP-972). When a termination is processed that includes ETP Payments but is not completed (payslip is not saved), and the termination wizard is re-run a second or multiple times with ETP components, multiple ETP Payments are recorded in STP reporting. Payslip format (ADP-730) alignment with FairWork. A fix for both issues will be available in a future release of Wagemaster.
