BSWAT PAYMENT SCHEME
AED Legal Centre has been notified by the Department of Social Services (DSS) that we have been approved to provide legal advice under the Business Services Wage Assessment Tool (BSWAT) Payment Scheme (the scheme). Our details have been published on the DSS webpage and can be found at https://www.dss.gov.au/disability-and-carers/programmes-services/for-people-with-disability/bswat-payment-scheme/register-of-legal-advisors-and-financial-counsellors-bswat-payment-scheme#legal-vic
We were contacted yesterday by one of our clients who said that he has accepted an offer of payment under the scheme.
This client did not seek legal advice and we are concerned that many employees will not be aware of their rights under the scheme.
So we ask you to spread the word to your colleagues as well as to refer your clients who have received an offer to us so that we can ensure they receive legal advice in relation to the payment.
If you have any questions about the process, please ring AED Legal Centre on 03 9639 4333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
