With JobKeeper 2.0 now in play, it is critical that anyone with employees reviews the JobKeeper business eligibility requirements as well as employee entitlements as to the appropriate tier. This is critical to ensure people are paid correctly and to ensure that you have the necessary information to better inform rostering decisions.

While the ATO website contradicts itself, click here for what I am told is the correct tier eligibility requirements.

Here are the key dates for JobKeeper 2.0:

  • September 28: start paying eligible employees under the second phase two-tier system, based on their hours worked in the comparison period.
  • October 1–14: complete your October JobKeeper monthly business declarations.
  • October 1–31: prepare and submit your business turnover decline to the ATO.
  • Before October 31: ensure you’ve met the wage condition for all JobKeeper eligible employees from the fortnight starting September 28.
  • From November 1: complete your monthly business declaration and confirm payment tiers you are claiming for each eligible worker.
