If an employer is using a one week on one week off rooster to minimise the risk of exposure to the virus to their staff, and the employees effectively earn $1,500 per week based on hours worked, and then zero the following week, are we required to pay them $1,500 for the week worked plus super and then $750 with no super for the week they don’t work, or is it simply $1,500 per fortnight which can be broken down per week or the total for the fortnight? Simply, the week the staff work they get paid $1500 plus super and then then next week they don't work they receive Nil? Is that allowed under the jobkeeper rules? Thanks
