You can also can get support for your employees wages if they are sick, and/or have been directed by healthline to take a test or isolate. Click here for more information about the short-term absence payment, or leave support scheme.
If your worker/s are not at the workplace, cannot work from home, and not sick – then you should both consult the employment agreement and discuss options.
Special paid leave should be considered especially in the short term while you discuss what happens next. Other options that could be considered include:
- annual holidays
- leave without pay
- long-service leave (if relevant)
- alternative holidays (if relevant)
- other payments (even partial payments) by the employer for a certain period of time
- any combination of the above
If the desired set of options are not provided for in the employment agreement, it would be necessary to negotiate a variation to the employment agreement. If a variation is not agreed, then the existing agreement must be followed.
If an employer considers broader variations are needed to hours or other aspects of the agreement, the employer should take some restructuring advice.
Ultimately employers and employees are expected to work together, keep in regular contact and to act in good faith. More useful information including a handy table can be found here.
