Jobkeeper scheme: racing the clock - 27 April 2020
The Government introduced and passed legislation on 8 April 2020, and Royal Assent was given on 9 April 2020. Further, on 9 April 2020 the Treasurer issued the Coronavirus Economic Response Package (Payments and Benefits) Rules 2020 which provide the detailed mechanical provisions for the jobkeeper scheme. The first payments expected under the Jobkeeper scheme will be paid by mid May 2020 and as a result, time is extremely compressed in order for employers to determine and register their eligibility.
