Hi @Farri11 

The JobKeeper payment is not equated to hours worked. It a payment of $1500 (before tax) per fortnight that your employer needs to pay to you before the ATO reimburses your employer.

Your hours of work are a discussion between you and your employer.

It is important to note if your employer is participating in the JobKeeper scheme, they need to use the Fair Work Act JobKeeper provisions for their employees.

Hope this information helps.
