Hi all,
Am I able to take leave-without pay and receive JobKeeper, even if I still have Annual Leave/Personal Leave saved up?
Thank you!

Hi @Made-of-Magic,

 

Thanks for getting in touch.

 

You may want to refer to the Fair Work website in relation to leave and JobKeeper payment.

 

You may need to have a conversation with your employer in relation to your leave request. As employers under the JobKeeper provisions in the Fair Work Act can request staff to take and use there accumulated annual leave. However, there are also provisions for eligible employees on authorised unpaid leave to receive JobKeeper payment.

 

All the best,
