Transitional termination payment

Last updated 28 June 2011

A transitional termination payment is a payment to which 'transitional arrangements' apply. Transitional arrangements apply to an ETP:

  • made to you on or after 1 July 2007, and
  • to which you were entitled on 9 May 2006 under
    • a written contract
    • an Australian or foreign law (or an instrument under such a law), or
    • a workplace agreement under the Fair Work Transitional Provisions and Consequential amendments Act 2009.

The contract, law or agreement should specify the amount of the payment or a way to work out the specific amount of the payment.
