Legislation extending JobKeeper has passed in Parliament, allowing the extension of JobKeeper by six months to 28 March 2021. The passage of the JobKeeper legislation also comes with an extension to the workplace flexibilities available for businesses receiving JobKeeper payments. The legislation also provides certain flexibilities to legacy JobKeeper businesses. As previously announced, along with a tapered payment in the December 2020 and March 2021 quarters, a two-tiered payment will also be introduced from 28 September 2020. The JobKeeper payment will continue to remain open to new participants that are eligible.
