End of JobKeeper Phase 1: what this could mean for your business

ASGA’s recent member bulletin discusses what the end of JobKeeper Phase 1 (which ended on 27 September 2020) could mean for your sign business.

Compiled by ASGA’s Business Advisor, the report highlights:

• The importance of notifiying staff if your company does not qualify for JobKeeper Phase 2.

• Clauses in awards and enterprise agreements that require employers to consult about major workplace change and change in hours. (Note: Members can gain access to the most recent ASGA Employment Information Guide via a link on signs.org.au.)

• Nortifying staff of changes appropriate to terms of employment status (for example: part-time, full-time, casual), and also whether they have remained at home or already transitioned back to pre-COVID hours and what is required from them, going forward.

• Being aware of the different scenarios that apply for employees who will no longer be eligible for the JobKeeper payment.
