The FWC has published a JobKeeper disputes benchbook as it clocks 120 applications to deal with disputes under the scheme, while a union-run 'Jobscammer' website recorded more than 250 responses in its first week.
The four big banks are establishing hotlines for employers seeking bridging finance to make JobKeeper payments to employees and some 456,000 workers have applied for early access to super, according to the Morrison Government, which today expressed hopes of maintaining its "excellent working relationship" with the ACTU into the post-coronavirus economic recovery.
Labor will lobby the Senate crossbench to overturn the Morrison Government's new regulations that cut the notice period that employers are required to give employees of changes to enterprise agreements.
The Morrison Government is wrong in maintaining that its shorter notice periods for agreement variations will only have effect during the coronavirus crisis, because the resulting changes to agreements will continue for the deals' full terms, according to the shadow IR minister.
The Morrison Government's legislation for the $1500 JobKeeper payments, to about six million workers, which has now passed the lower house, is based on Federal Treasurer John Frydenberg setting rules to govern how the payments are made and administered.
