Do I still have to pay jobkeeper to an employee that has been dismissed

I have an employee who has been receiving jobkeeper since March.  I wish to dismiss this employee, do I still need to continue to claim and pay them the jobkeeper payment after they have completed their notice period?

Hi @Brad3 

 

@SM2304 is correct. Employers can dismiss staff who are receiving jobKeeper. The employer will cease claiming a jobKeeper payment for the staff member. The alteration in the number of staff being claimed for is made on the monthly jobKeeper business declaration. For further information see a similar post Jobkeeper Dismissal;  and there is another post addressed to an employer Jobkeeper and dismissal.

 

Hope you found this helpful

No, not once they are dismissed as the whole point of Jobkeeper is to preserve jobs
