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:

  1. Probationary periods;
  2. Redundancy;
  3. Mutual termination;
  4. Stand down;
  5. Work from home; and
  6. 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.
