The JobKeeper Payment

Have you heard about The JobKeeper Payment? It’s a payment the Federal Government are making to eligible businesses and not-for-profits affected by COVID-19 to support them to help keep their employees during this tough financial time.

The JobKeeper Payment will be available from 30 March 2020 and will be available up until 27 September 2020.

Eligible businesses will get a payment of $1,500/fortnight for each employee. The employee must have been employed on 1 March 2020, and the company must pay the employee before they are entitled to be eligible for the JobKeeper payment. The self-employed are also eligible to receive the JobKeeper payment.

This government resource has all the details for both employers and employees.
