    Hi, my employer hired me on fixed term full time basis for 1 year and stopped payment after 6 months due to no work. Employer is still looking for new assignment but no success BUT employer is not paying salary and my contract is still active. Employer did not given me any Notice as well for terminating the contract. Please advice what max penalties I can ask apart from my unpaid wages and annual leave balances against the employer?

    Thanks in Advance.

    You need to read up on the modern award that covers you. The modern award lists the penalties that apply.
