COVID 19 NEW JURISDICTION IN THE FAIR WORK COMMISSION
COVID 19 GIVES BIRTH TO A NEW JURISDICTION IN THE FAIR WORK COMMISSION
The Industrial laws of Australia continue to apply to all employment relationships during the Covid19 Pandemic and in particular the unfair dismissal laws and redundancy rules. The team at Workclaims Australia continue to provide assistance, advice and representation during this time as the Tribunals convert to Video Conferencing and hearings.
The Government has now enacted the legislation to bring into law the Job Keeper package which enables employers to give their staff Job Keeper Enabling Directions. This may mean in certain circumstances that the following occurs:
- A temporary and partial stand down
- Alter an employee’s usual duties and locations of work
- Alter an employee’s days and times of work
- Request that an employee take paid annual leave, including at half pay.
If a grievance or dispute arises from these occurrences, an employee has the right to apply to the Fair Work Commission for relief. We are here to make such applications and provide representation right through the mediation and/or conciliation process including arbitration if not resolved earlier.
For all your work related matters please call us or Patrick personally on 0413527330.
