Qantas has failed in its challenge to FWC powers to review how it applied the JobKeeper scheme to a worker claiming he was short-changed, a full bench finding among other reasons that the airline's characterisation of the dispute was "somewhat artificial".
One Nation Senator Pauline Hanson has called for the Morrison Government to pull back from new regulations that cut the notice period that employers are required to give employees of proposed changes to enterprise agreements from seven days to a minimum of one day.
ATO advice on the JobKeeper scheme has failed to clarify the "one in, all in" requirement, while a new guide to the subsidy has warned that eligible employers that direct employees to undertake different duties should keep detailed records of their decision-making.
The Opposition and legal experts have questioned why the JobKeeper rules appear to leave out the "one in, all in" requirement spelt out in their explanatory statement, and have canvassed what it might mean for employers wanting to negotiate trade-offs.
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.
