With lockdown coming to an end in some major cities, we will see a rising trend in significant impacts on regional towns and communities in those states. For the Employment Service Providers, the end of the COVID-19 supplement payments and suspended Mutual Obligations will see face-to-face appointments between employees and vulnerable participants increase significantly. For all Jobs Australia Members, there are numerous implications to consider around workforce, change management, and navigating the path ahead, post-pandemic.

The policy surrounding vaccinations is a focus for most Jobs Australia Members. I am pleased to advise Jobs Australia’s Workplace Relations team continue to work closely with our legal advisers to provide Members with the most up to date and accurate advice.

This is a complex topic that appears to be changing daily. For the most recent information, we suggest Members visit the following link.
