As of today, employers need to pay their eligible employees a different rate of JobKeeper.
The tier 1 rate of $1,200 per fortnight will now replace the $1,500 flat payment and will apply to employees who worked for 80 hours or more in the four weeks of pay periods before either 1 March 2020 or 1 July 2020, or eligible participants who were actively engaged in the business for 80 hours or more in February.
The tier 2 rate of $750 per fortnight will apply to all other eligible employees and business participants.
Additionally, while those employers already receiving the payment don’t need to re-enrol, they must demonstrate a decline in turnover and notify the ATO which tier they will claim for their employees.
