JobKeeper Update: More Of Your Staff May Be Eligible


In light of the heightened restrictions in Victoria, the government have released changes to the JobKeeper scheme to allow for more Australian businesses and employees to join.

The Government has advised that going forward staff who were employed at 1st July 2020 may be eligible to join the JobKeeper scheme from the 10th JobKeeper fortnight. This is an extension of the prior requirement that eligible staff needed to be employed at 1st March 2020.

If you have a staff member who was employed on or before 1st July 2020, check that they meet the other pre-existing eligibility criteria listed below:

A permanent employee (full-timer or permanent part-timer)
A ‘long term casual’ meaning they have completed 12 months of ‘regular and systematic’ service
An Australian Resident (generally)
An adult (18 years) or a financially independent junior (16 years)
The employee is not receiving the JobKeeper payments through another employer
The employee is not receiving Centrelink Paid Parental Leave payments
The employee is not receiving WorkCover payments while fully incapacitated
The employee has returned to you the signed document that they consent to the payments and agree with their eligibly


If your staff member meets all of these criteria, they are eligible to join the scheme from JobKeeper fortnight 10, which is payroll payments made between 3rd August to 16th August.

Stay tuned for further changes as the JobKeeper scheme has been extended a further six months to 28 March 2021.
