ACTU update: JobKeeper - eligibility, rights and entitlements

Last night, the JobKeeper legislation passed through Parliament. This means $130 billion in wage subsidies will now go directly to workers to save millions of jobs.

The Coronavirus Workers’ Rights Resource Centre has put together some resources to help you understand what it means for working people including eligibility, rights (including health and safety), entitlements and changes made to the law.
