JobKeeper 2.0 – Fair Work Act amendments for ‘qualifying’ and ‘legacy’ employers

Parliament has now passed the legislation for the second phase of JobKeeper, or ‘JobKeeper 2.0’, which will now continue to provide financial support and workplace flexibilities to employers for the extended period ranging from 28 September 2020 to 28 March 2021. As part of this, the JobKeeper provisions in the Fair Work Act were extended, however, there have been some key changes to these flexibilities and employers should take note.
