NSW Members

Amendments have been made to two pieces of NSW legislation to assist businesses in New South Wales dealing with COVID-19.

Long Service Leave Act 1955 (NSW)

The Long Service Leave Act has been amended to allow an employer to give a worker with a long service leave entitlement:

  • a period of long service leave that is less than one month if the worker agrees to the lesser period of leave;
  • less than one month’s notice if the worker agrees to that lesser period of notice.

These amendments apply for the next 6 months, and may be extended for a further 6 months if necessary.

Economic Stimulus package
30 March 2020:

A new wage subsidy package is available from the Federal Government to help businesses deal with the impact of COVID-19. The new wage subsidy system supports businesses to keep employees in their job. Registration requires the employer’s Australian Business Number (ABN). It is available to full and part-time workers, sole traders, and casuals who have been with their employer for 12 months or more. Employers and sole traders will be able to apply to the Australian Tax Office. The payments will flow from the first week of May and be backdated. If employees have been stood down by their employer since March 1, they are still eligible for payments. To be eligible, their payments will need to have fallen by 30 per cent or more. Register for support here >
