I have a staff member currently being paid on Jobkeeper, who is not doing their job properly and has received several warnings, and continues to mouth off to me eventhough I am their emlpoyer. She thinks I cannot fire her because shes on jobkeeper and I have to pay if she works or not. Can I please have a clear response as to whether I can fire her.

Thanks

Of course you can fire her - being on Jobkeeper does not entitle anyone to employment

Hi @Curious21,

 

Basically, what @SM2304 said - obviously you would want to ensure you are following the correct workplace policies that are implemented, and I would suggest speaking to the Fair Work Ombudsman who deal with these types of disputes if you want further guidance.
