HI

 

I got a long standing parttime employee resigned from employment last week and agreed to come onboard as a casual employee. By the time, our company is looking to offer jobkeeper for employees, will that particular employee resigned recently in any instance would be eligible for nomination. The grey area that i have is now the employee is on casual contract but was a part time for few years.

 

Regards

Yuga

It sounds like their employment has changed from part time to casual, but their employment with you never actually terminated because they have continued to work for you. In this case, they do qualify for JK.

Do you mean the business just passed the turnover test and qualified for JobKeeper now rather earlier like March or April. The employee is is still eligible for JobKeeper as they were employed by the entity 1 March 2020. You will need to pay them a minimum $1,500 per fortnight to be able to claim JobKeeper on their behalf.

  • full-time, part-time or fixed-term employees at 1 March 2020"

Hi @yugantha,

 

Both KatieAcacia and needananswer have provided good answers here - as per our eligibility requirements, so long as your employee was a fixed term, full time, part time employee on the 1st of March 2020 and not a permanent employee for any other employer than your employee would be eligible for JobKeeper.

 

Hope this helps!
