Worried you’re missing part of your refund? Remember, the low and middle income tax offset isn’t a refund on its own – it’s used to offset (or reduce) the amount of tax you pay. The offset amount you may be entitled to is automatically applied and could range between $255-$1080, depending on things like your taxable income and how much tax you’ve paid.

JobKeeper - Employee now has Full Time employment elsewhere, still employed as a casual

We are receiving JobKeeper and have a Long term Casual who is receiving JobKeeper Payments currently.

They have just started a full time job with another employer but wish to remain employed by the business doing minimal casual hours on the weekend.

Are they still eligible for JobKeeper now they have a full time job elsewhere?

I note, on the JobKeeper Employee Nomination notice the employee agrees they are not a permanent employee of another employer, is this only as at 1 March 2020?

Thanks in advance

H @Courtney125,

 

From what you have told us, your casual employee will not be able to continue to receive JobKeeper from you once they start their new full time job. 

 

As you noted in the Nomination form and as you will also see here in the JobKeeper eligible employee section on our website, one of the main criteria a casual employee needs to meet in order to keep receiving JobKeeper is that they cannot be a permanent employee of any other employer, so their new full time job would exclude them (regardless of the fact they got that new role after 1 March 2020).

Our casual became "unavailable" as he found a permanent role elsewhere. Based on the above advice we removed the casual from our Job Keeper eligibility list. The employee has now had a change of heart & resigned from the full time position & wants to be reinstated with us on a casual basis. Can he be re-instated under Job Keeper as he originally was?

Hiya @Petej,

 

There is information on our website regarding terminated employees. If they meet the specific criteris listed, you will be eligible to claim Jobkeeper for them.

 

Terminated employees.
