I am a final year allied health student who has also been working casually in retail for +2 years. My casual work place has provided an update on the COVID-19 situation with the following,
"Due to the updated eligibility criteria under the revised JobKeeper 2.0 scheme, (company) will no longer be eligible to receive JobKeeper payments from the 28th September 2020. As a result, Team Members who are currently receiving JobKeeper will no longer receive these payments following 27th September"
(company) is currently closed due to stage 4 restrictions - therefore I am unable to work and earn an income
University placements- As we are in hospital environments, it is suggested that we do not engage in any work that may place a high risk of spread during this period - therefore unable to work
As I have a job, but technically cannot work - would I qualify for JobSeeker or any sort of government initiative during this pandemic now that I am no longer eligible for JobKeeper?
