I worked in the beauty industry and we have all been stood down now for a few weeks and my employer is now applying for jobkeeper. However now our employer is asking us to work from home Monday to Friday 9-5. For the $1500 (before tax) a fortnight. The government is essentially paying us, should we have to work for the jobkeeper money or not??

This one is more of a fair work question rather than the ATO. Within reason they can ask you to do diferent duties or work from a different location so long its safe and within your skill set.
