From 1 July 2019, the income threshold for unfair dismissal claims made in the Fair Work Commission increased to $148,700. This threshold will apply to any dismissal which took effect on or after 1 July 2019. For dismissals which took effect on or before 30 June 2019 the income threshold is $145,400. The income taken into consideration when calculating whether or not the threshold has been exceeded is wages/salary, other amounts worked out in accordance with the Fair Work Regulations 2009 and the agreed monetary value of non-monetary benefits which the employee is entitled to in return for working and for which a reasonable money value has been agreed by the employee and employer. It does not include payments the amount of which cannot be determined in advance (e.g. bonus, commission, overtime other than guaranteed overtime), reimbursements and compulsory superannuation payments.
