On 8 April 2020, legislation to temporarily amend the Fair Work Act to help with the implementation of the JobKeeper wage subsidy passed.
The new provisions will enable employers who qualify for JobKeeper to:
- make temporary and partial stand downs in certain circumstances
- temporarily alter employees' usual duties and locations of work in certain circumstances
- agree with their employee on altering an employee's days and times of work and use of annual leave in certain circumstances.
The Fair Work Commission will be able deal with disputes about these changes. The JobKeeper wage subsidy will be administered by the Australian Taxation Office.
