EIR is well known in the industry for being a good employer. We are proud to pay at or above the Modern Award, which is the construction industry instrument for pay and conditions of employment.
Our pay week goes from Monday to Friday (we do this so you can be paid before the weekend!), and your pay is deposited into your account on Friday the following week. Every week, you are emailed your payslip, and your funds are transferred by our bank to your nominated bank account.
To be paid we need you to set up some details in our Pay Portal. You can add and edit your bank details, super details and tax details as well as view all of your past payslips.
Check out the video below on how to set yourself up.
Your Tax Obligations
When you first join us, you must complete a Tax Declaration Form. This determines how much tax you will pay, based on your circumstances. You can use this calculator to work out the tax you will pay.
Superannuation is the Australian government’s way of helping people save for their retirement. Basically, EIR contributes an extra 9.5% on top of your ordinary time earnings to the superannuation fund of your choice. It’s compulsory for you to have a Superannuation fund. If you don’t provide us with one, we set up an account for you with SunSuper, and make the payments there.
You earn superannuation each week, and you will see the amount detailed in your payslip. Every three months, EIR makes a lump sum payment into the superannuation fund of your choice. You get statements and reports each quarter from your superfund, so make sure you keep your contact details up to date with them.
Once a quarter, the boss at EIR puts on “staff drinks” at a local pub. If you are a good, reliable worker you will be invited! It’s a great way to meet people, and have a great night out!
EIR’s Referral Program
Earn yourself a six-pack by referring good workers to us! Once they complete their first five shifts, we’ll give you a six-pack of beer.
