What you need to know about JobKeeper Payment Scheme

What you need to know about JobKeeper Payment Scheme

The government hasn’t made it easy for us HR people. It feels like we’re being asked to be codebreakers: deciphering the cryptic code and confusing laws around the JobKeeper Payment Scheme. It’s added stress, that quite frankly, is not needed right now.

How do I know this? Because we’ve been working with HR teams just like yours, our customers, to figure out what they need to do in order to be compliant and ready for the April JobKeeper Payment (and future payments).

We spent some time breaking it down to really understand and create a process that works. Here’s what you need to know about the JobKeeper Payment Scheme, a process you can steal and a pdf guide to download

 

What you need to know:

Who is eligible? Employee Eligibility

Employees qualify if

  1. They were full time, part-time or long term casual (and not permanently employed by another employer) as at 1 March 2020
  2. Were at least 16 years old at 1 March 2020
  3. Were Australian residents within the meaning of the Social Security Act 1991 (see ATO resources)

AND

  1. They agree to be nominated by you;
  2. Have not been nominated by another employer.

 

What is the process? What do you have to do?

In order to be approved for the JobKeeper Payment scheme, here are the steps you must take; 

  1. You must first identify and record all eligible employees
  2. Then you need to send the “JobKeeper Employee Nomination Notice” as mandated by law to ALL eligible employees (even if they won’t nominate you)
  3. This form must be completed by the employee, giving consent for the JobKeeper allowance to be claimed by the business. 
  4. The completed form must be returned by the end of April in order to claim the JobKeeper payment for April
  5. Employees who have more than one employer can only choose one employer

Some Laws you have to follow:

  • This form must be kept on file for at least 5 years
  • YOU MUST NOMINATE ALL ELIGIBLE EMPLOYEES, you cannot choose to nominate only some employees.
  • Individual employees can choose not to participate

 

How can you communicate this to your employees?

After you identify all eligible employees, you must send them an ATO compliant JobKeeper Nomination Notice. Even if you know they won’t be claiming the payment, (if for example, they will claim from another employer), you must still send them this notice and receive their response.

As per the ATO – the form can be communicated out via HRIS or communication portal, as long as it is compliant with requirements here. You can recreate this form if you choose in your HR system (this is the approach we have taken internally).

A signature is not required by the ATO on the form, however, it can be requested if you choose.
All completed forms must be stored on record for at least 5 years. 

Cheatsheet

This may seem like a lot of information to refer to, so we made a ‘cheat sheet’ pdf you can download with all of this information on 1 page. You can download it here.

If you need help with this, we’ve done the work for you. We built out an automated JobKeeper Nomination Notice process, including compliant e-notice with automated reporting, into the FREE version of our HR Software system. You can find out more and get started here if you’d like.
