About the Webinar

The global COVID-19 pandemic has prompted an unprecedented response from Australia’s Government to support the Australian economy whilst the necessary public health measures have been in place to “flatten the curve”. A centrepiece of this response is the JobKeeper Scheme, which is designed to support employers, who have suffered significant declines in turnover during the COVID pandemic, to keep their employees engaged in the business and in the economy. This Scheme is complimented by a number of other Federal and State government measures which are all relevant to US commercial interests in Australia. With the benefit of observing and advising on these measures of the last two months since implemented, we will go through the critical aspects of the measures which employers need to be aware of in positioning their businesses for the post-COVID-19 world.
