JobKeeper Payment – Economic Response to the Coronavirus

The Morrison Government has this week introduced a JobKeeper Payment of $1,500 per fortnight, per eligible employee, for up to 6 months.

The JobKeeper Payment started on 30 March 2020, with the first payment to be received by employers in the first week of May.

Employers must pass this payment on to their employees.

Please see below outline of the JobKeeper Payment Program.

This is important information for both employers and employees to be aware of.
