Will the Government adjust JobKeeper eligibbility?  

We have staff who pre-COVID-19 worked maximum 3 hrs a week now earning more than reemployed casuals (not previously eligible for JK) working longer hours for less.. This is NOT FAIR.  Job Keeper should never have included casuals working minimal hours, ie 3 - 6 hours per week and not means tested.  Many of these people are still working other jobs, are finacially stable and rorting this system, clearly because their casual employment was only supplimentary.  

Please investigate JK for Casuals - it's been such a wasteful and stressful scheme!

Employees with multiple employers

If you have multiple employers, only one employer can claim the JobKeeper payment on your behalf. Your employers may ask you to tell them if you agree to be nominated as an eligible employee of theirs to receive the JobKeeper payment.

If you are employed by more than one employer, you should contact your employers and tell them which employer you want to receive the JobKeeper payment from.

If you are a long-term casual and you have other permanent employment, you must choose your permanent employer – you cannot be nominated by your casual employer.

You need to lobby the government. The ATO administers the scheme, they do not make the rules
