Pay Rates and Salary Packaging Benefits
We work under the Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Services Industry Award 2010 and Supported Employment Services Award 2010.
Please see http://www.fwa.gov.au/ for details of awards. Most of our support workers start at Level 3. Team Leaders generally commence at Level 6.
What is salary packaging? Due to Multitasks tax status as a Not for Profit organisation, we are able to offer salary packaging to our staff members. Participation in our salary packaging program means you can save on the amount of tax you pay which leaves more money in your pocket each fortnight.
How does it work? With salary packaging, you agree to divert a portion of your fortnightly salary to pay off your mortgage, rent, other loans or credit card expenses. Then you just pay tax on the amount that is left. This means you pay less tax.
Who is eligible? Full salary packaging is available to permanent part time and full time staff, i.e. for mortgages, rent, credit cards and other loans. Casuals are eligible to salary package credit card payments only. Casuals must be working at least 15 hours per week.
How much can I package? Eligible employees are able to sacrifice $16,050 pro rata of gross salary and pay no tax on this amount. All tax savings are passed directly on to the employee.
How do I benefit? In effect, it means the salary you are earning is worth $1000's of dollars more.
Examples of salary packaging
- On an annual salary of $35,000 (includes all penalty allowances) packaging the full $16,050 results in an after tax benefit of approx an additional $3588 per year. This means a salary of $35,000 would be equivalent to a salary of approximately $40,040 in a commercial organisation.
- On an annual salary of $45,000 (includes all penalty allowances) packaging the full $16,050 results in an after tax benefit of approx $4,368 per year. This means a salary of $45,000 at Multitask would be equivalent to a salary of approximately $51,272 in a commercial organisation.
Please note: Superannuation is calculated on base salary.

Over recent years we have expanded the number and style of services on offer. It is our belief that each person is an individual and that the model of service delivery should match the persons own requirements and abilities. We continually look for innovative, effective ways in which we can support people with disabilities to lead active lives.
