Register for updates on JobKeeper



The JobKeeper Payment is a program that aims to keep workers in their jobs throughout the Coronavirus crisis. 
How it works
A Government payment of $750 per week is available for every worker who is eligible for the program. This money is paid to your employer, who will then use it to pay you. 
If they are eligible, your employer will need to apply for the payment on your behalf. They can do this by visiting the ATO website. 
For more information on eligibility, view the fact sheets under Member resources below.
What do I do?
If you are a union member, please fill out the form so we can help to use this scheme to protect your job. 

If your employer has closed or you have lost your job, you may be eligible for support through the JobSeeker Program.
