See Fair Work Act 2009 ss.789GC, 789GDC, 789GE, 789GF and Division 6 of Part 6-4C
Under Part 6-4C, an employer that qualifies for the jobkeeper scheme can give a ‘jobkeeper enabling direction’. There are three types of jobkeeper enabling directions:
More information about the three types of jobkeeper enabling directions is set out below.
Jobkeeper enabling directions must be in writing, must not be unreasonable, and are subject to the notice and consultation requirements.
Subject to any order made by the Fair Work Commission in dealing with a dispute about the operation of Part 6-4C, jobkeeper enabling directions operate until they are withdrawn, revoked or replaced. All jobkeeper enabling directions cease to have effect at the start of 28 September 2020.
The Minister for Industrial Relations has the power to exclude one or more specified employers from being able to give jobkeeper enabling directions, but this has not yet occurred.
See the checklist at Attachment 2 to identify whether a jobkeeper enabling direction is authorised and has effect.
