The impact of coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic shut down whole industries almost overnight, leaving many employees without work or income. To that end, the JobKeeper initiative launched by the Australian Federal Government in March 2020 seeks to provide businesses who have suffered significant financial loss with a stimulus package to assist their employees. The JobKeeper initiative has been initially slated to run until 27 September 2020.
Please note there have since been significant updates to JobKeeper since the legislation passed through parliament on 8 April 2020. To address this and provide updated information about managing JobKeeper in Sybiz Visipay, we have hosted multiple webinars on 2 April, 17 April and 24 April that are available to watch

, with changes to payment amounts and employer eligibility from the end of September 2020.
Please note: All information should only be considered general in nature. Businesses and individuals should seek personalised advice about eligibility and suitability.
