Redundancy Notice Period Payment Amount whilst on Job Keeper

I'm new

Hi, 

I am currently on unpaid leave (maternity leave) and recieving Job Keeper. I am in talks regarding a redundancy and entitled to a notice period of 4 weeks (5+ years service). My employer said that the notice is from today (although not documented and we have another 'discussion' meeting next week, so i doubt that!) and i'll receive the Job Keeper payment for the next 4 weeks as the 4 weeks notice period...i don't feel this is correct? As I am on unpaid leave, I read that i am entitled to 4 weeks full pay. Or, is this different because i am on Job Keepr currently? Many thanks.

Your employer is correct

You are only entitled to 4 weeks JK payment (check out Fair Trade Website which sets this all out). Please also note that the JK payment you receive will will lower than previous JK payments as the JK rate has decreased.

You have today given notice of your intension to leave, so  your employer is correct, your notice is from today. Your notice is not from a future date, even if you are going to have further discussions next week about your leaving.
