I am planning to resign from the employer who is currently providing me with JobKeeper payments, no later than mid June. Will I run into trouble regarding this, due to the payments that I am currently recieving? Will I need to repay the money they paid me? The resignation was planned long before everything went south with COVID-19, due to the completion of my studies. Just want to know if it's worth me trying to opt out of the JobKeeper payments now, in order to lessen any complications.
Thanks for reaching out and apologies for the delay.
You must inform your employer when you are no longer going to be entitled to the JobKeeper payment.
Fair Work has provided additional guidance on employee and employer obligations – see JobKeeper changes to the Fair Work Act.
I hope this helps.
