Last week, the Federal Government agreed a six month, $32 billion extension to the COVID-19 JobKeeper Scheme (see our full update here). Australian businesses have been hit hard by the pandemic, and the Scheme has helped many stay afloat since its introduction in March.

In this webinar (hosted on Thursday, 10 September 2020), Brett Feltham (Partner) and Emma Moran (Senior Associate) of the Gadens Employment Advisory Team discuss in-depth the amendments to the legislation, unpacking the changes coming under JobKeeper 2.0.

Our team has worked through the legislation in detail and explains the key differences between the first iteration of the Scheme and the changes that will come into effect on 28 September 2020. The case studies covered during this session aim to provide some understanding of the amendments to the Scheme and help inform you in managing your workforce moving forward.

If you need any advice regarding JobKeeper 2.0 and the Fair Work Act, please reach out to our Employment Advisory Team.
