I have been stood down for the next few weeks. My employer has indicated that we will be back to work and on site, so this is not a redundancy. What should I do and what am I entitled to during this time?
- Keep in touch with your employer so they can have you back at work when restrictions are eased.
- You can apply for the Incolink Covid-19 payment of $2,000 per month or $1,000 per month for apprentices, providing your account balance covers the amount being claimed. You can still receive this payment even if you are receiving JobKeeper.
- You have the option of applying for any annual leave owing, this will be paid directly by your employer.
- You may also receive JobKeeper payments if your employer meets the eligibility criteria, or, if you are self employed (contractor) you can apply directly to the ATO for JobKeeper.
