Special COVID-19 Update

Global pandemic = Unprecedented change!

The spread of the Coronavirus worldwide has resulted in strict quarantine measures being implemented across the world to limit the impact of this deadly disease. 

In this months newsletter we outline a few of the Economic Responses from the Federal and NSW State Governments to support affected workers, businesses and householders. Other State Governments have their own responses - if you have a request for these please let us know.

We have also provided a timely update on the HR impact of business closures and when a 'Stand Down' can be enacted under the Fair Work Act.

We note that the Governments are updating their responses as new information comes to hand with more information being announced daily. We will try and keep people informed as new information is announced.

Latest Economic Response
The Federal Government has committed a total of $189 billion (or 9.7% of the annual GDP) towards economic stimulus and other support mechanisms. In addition to this the NSW State Government have announced Payroll Tax exemptions and have waived certain permit costs as outlined in our attached summary.

Also included in the summary are a few notes on what employees can claim if they are forced to "work from home" during this crisis and what documents they should keep to claim these expenses on their future tax returns.

Latest HR Guidance
With businesses having to scale back due to lack of customers or available staff or even close due to the Government directive the option of employee terminations or lay-offs must be considered by all employers. 

If you manage to remain open, what should you do if an employee is required to self-isolate or simply doesn't return to work due to health concerns. Should you consider split shifts to minimise the impact on workers if anyone does become ill? How does this impact WHS at work?

We have summarised a number of guidelines that might be helpful to ensure you are keeping on the right side of the law with regards to these employee changes.
