Job Keeper eligibility, sole trader and employee

Newbie

Hello ATO community

I work part time as a sole trader and an part time as an employee. The majority of my income comes from my work as a sole trader. I have had a significant downturn in my sole trader income as a result of covid-19 (<40% of previous months earning for March). My employee work has not been affected by covid. My accountant has advised that as I earn money as an employee, I am not eligible for the job keeper payment.  Is this the case even though it is not my primary source of income? Is there a way to get an exemption to that rule? Thank you
