Employer making me quit other employment to stay on Jobkeeper

I'm new

Before Covid-19 i had 2 employers (1x part-time and 1x permanent part-time). At my part time position I had 3 set days and my permanent position worked around three days. I have applied for the Job Keeper payment (from the permanent job) and have been receiving it. However, my employer has since said that they will be reopening for 3 days a week, 2 of those are days I don’t normally work. Therefore, they have said I will need to quit my other job to remain on job keeper so I can work all 3 days.

Is this correct? As my part-time job is aligned and contributes with my university studies. This position is also under contract with the Government so by quitting I’d be breaking that contract.
