It was reaffirmed that the current JobKeeper arrangements will continue through to the end of September 2020 as originally announced. After that, the current support of $1,500 per fortnight for every eligible employee will reduce to $1,200 per fortnight, but only $750 for employees who work less than 20 hours per week. That support will apply from 28 September 2020 to 3 January 2021.
JobKeeper will then reduce further to $1,000 per fortnight for relevant employees and $650 per fortnight for those who work less than 20 hours per week. This third instalment of JobKeeper payments will continue through to 28 March 2021.
