JobKeeper Payment Explainer

The Government’s new JobKeeper payment requires employees and employers to work together. Here is more info for employees & employers. There are links to fact sheets below.
FOR EMPLOYEES: If you’re an employee for an organisation which has had a 30% reduction (or more) in sales due to the coronavirus crisis your employer can apply for $1500 a fortnight to cover your wages for 6 months. If you were employed on March 1, you’ll get the money whether you are full-time, part-time or casual (casuals must have been employed for at least a year). The Government will start to pay the money to your employer on May 1, but your employer is meant to start paying you ASAP. NZ citizens with subclass 444 visa are eligible for this payment. If you’ve already been sacked speak to you employer about going back.
FOR EMPLOYERS: If you’re an employer, you will need to register for the JobKeeper payment here.
Both EMPLOYEES & EMPLOYERS can find more info here.
