COVID – 19
To employers and employees
Whether you are an employee or an employer, in light of the current pandemic, you now need to consider your employment.
There are many options and a confusing number of things to consider, such as:
- Probationary periods;
- Mutual termination;
- Stand down;
- Work from home; and
- Paid leave.
All options come with their own issues and requirements. For example, a mutual termination can be seen as a voluntary resignation which may affect an employee’s ability to claim Centrelink payments when they urgently need it.
