The End of JobKeeper: What Next for Employers?

COVID-19 has forced many businesses to rely on the Government JobKeeper scheme to help keep their operations going and staff employed. The initial JobKeeper payment comes to an end, 27 September 2020, and from 28 September 2020, businesses will be required to reassess their eligibility for the extension. A tiered reduced payment will be staggered until 28 March 2021. Although some sectors have begun the long road back to recovery, there are concerns about how the changes of the JobKeeper scheme will impact businesses that have relied upon it to survive the last few months. Employers need to start planning now to ensure they are ready to take decisive action that will help safeguard their businesses when the Government’s JobKeeper scheme ends or reduces.

During this webinar, our employment expert, Ben Duggan, will explore some of the key issues employers will face and provide a framework that will help them to prepare for the changes or end of JobKeeper. You will learn about:

  • The post JobKeeper workplace
  • Consultation/Restructure/Redundancies
  • Varying existing contracts, policies and practices
  • Flexible workplace practices
  • Management of employment claims risk
  • Future Government Stimulus

If you want to ensure your business is prepared, this is a webinar not to be missed.
