Extension of COVID-19 Jobkeeper General Order

On 15 September 2020, the Commission issued a General Order under s 50 Industrial Relations Act 1979 (WA) that has extended the operation of the JobKeeper General Order until 28 March 2021.

The Commission in Court Session undertook a review of the General Order and heard from the Minister, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and UnionsWA. It was agreed that, in the current circumstances of the COVID-19 Pandemic and its effects on businesses and employment, and the continuing uncertainty it has generated, the operation of the General Order should continue until 28 March 2021 to be consistent with the operation of the Federal JobKeeper Scheme.

The order can be read here.
