520    The Protection of Employee Entitlements in Insolvency: An 
       Australian Perspective is the first detailed analysis of 
       the law and policy dealing with employee entitlements such
       as wages, leave and redundancy payments that are 
       threatened when companies fail. Although Australia has a 
       government-funded safety-net scheme, currently known as 
       the Fair Entitlements Guarantee, it doesn't cover all lost
       entitlements for all workers. Some argue that the scheme 
       removes any incentive for companies to make adequate 
       provision for their employees' entitlements, increasing 
       the burden on the taxpayer. As well.
