Priority employee entitlement threshold

Employees of a business with a company structure have priority thresholds for a claim.

Excluded Employees: Excluded employees can only receive $2,000 in relation to wages and $1,500 in relation to leave entitlements in priority to non-employee creditors. They will not receive a priority dividend for other entitlements.

Non-excluded employee: No Limit. Non-excluded employees (not related to the directors) can receive their full entitlements.
