I have an employee who was on maternity leave from February to August. How do we calculate her hours for the JK extension? Do we just look at her ordinary hours worked before going on maternity leave?

Hi @Hazel6,

 

There may be additional information added and changes may occur to the JobKeeper extension as it has not passed through parliament yet.

 

The information will eventually be available on ATO website and relied upon however on the meantime we suggest you check Treasury website for any updates. You can also check the timeline of JobKeeper updates which is updated regularly as more information becomes available.  

 

All the best.

Hi @Hazel6

 

For all employees you need to workout if they qualify for tier 1 or tier 2 payments by calculating their working hours in a 28-day reference period ending immediately before March 1st or July 1st. See our guidance about the 80-hour threshold for employees. Employees who were on unpaid leave during that standard reference period have an alternative reference period that you can calculate their hours by.

 

Hope that helps.
