QUESTION OF THE WEEK ... 19 MARCH 2018
My weekly KiwiSaver employee contribution includes overtime, but the company is only paying 3 per cent of my base salary into KiwiSaver. Is this allowed? Obviously, the company is trying to pay the lesser amount.
Your employer is not playing ball. "The 3% compulsory employer contribution is calculated on the gross salary or wages".
The definition of gross salary or wages for KiwiSaver schemes generally means total salary, wages or allowances, including bonuses, commission, extra salary, gratuity, overtime and other remuneration of any kind before tax.
By this definition the employer should be calculating its contribution on gross wages including overtime paid to the employee.
