Hi,

 

I have been a casual employee for over 3 years on a regular and systematic basis as of the 01/03/2020 at my current employer. At the time when the buinsess became eligiable for JobKeeper (early April) I had taken 3 weeks off (for health and safety reasons) however I was working up until the 31/03/20. Am I still eligable for JobKeeper?

Hi @mh652 

 

Based on what you have described here it appears as though you meet the eligibility criteria. If you have had to take time off, there is no minimum number of hours that you need to work to receive the JobKeeper payment.

 

Thanks, NateH
