Hello,

I am currently employed through an education agency working as a casual primary school teacher. I have been recieving jobkeeper all of term 4. However when I pick up casual work during the fortnight my jobkeeper wage is less or 0. Does the hrs I work and amount I earn affect jobkeeper payment? Thank you

Your casual work should not affect your jk payment at all. In other words, you should still get JK for your permanent job, plus your casual wages

Jobkeeper does not work like that - unless your working hourswages are greater than the Jobkeeper amount, you will just get the Jobkeeper amount, not Jobkeeper + wages for hours worked

As mentioned previously, if your working hours wages do not exceed 1200 per fortnight ( tier 1 Jobkeeper paynment) you will NOT get more than that regardless of the hours worked. It is only if your working hours wages for the fortnight exceed 1200, you will get the actual calculated wage.
