Section 789GU of Part 6-4C was repealed on 29 March 2021.
See Attachment 5 for information about the jobkeeper provisions that apply on and after 29 March 2021.
If a jobkeeper enabling stand down direction applies to an employee, the employee may ask their employer:
- to engage in reasonable secondary employment
- for training
- for professional development.
- must consider the request, and
- must not unreasonably refuse the request.
If the employer does not consider or unreasonably refuses the request, they contravene a civil remedy provision.
A civil remedy provision is a provision of the Fair Work Act that if breached, means that the person affected can apply to a Court for an order for a financial penalty against the alleged wrong-doer, or any other order the Court considers appropriate such as an injunction.
