Last week we announced the Employment Stability Payment and back pay to eligible employees who may have been allocated a reduced number of shifts due to our response to COVID-19.
As our services start to open back up, there is an opportunity for casual employees – and part-time employees who take on extra shifts – to get back to work quickly, work shifts that match their skills and experience, and maintain their average hours.
Employees who are eligible for the Employment Stability Payment and wish to receive this continued payment (until the restrictions on elective surgery are lifted) will need to complete the online Employment Stability Payment application form by Sunday 24 May 2020.
The Employment Stability Payment application form will involve filling in questions about skills, availability, and site preferences, and can be completed online in less than 10 minutes.
An email has been sent to all casual employees, and part-time employees who work additional shifts, to outline the steps involved.
Managers of these employees will also need to be registered on the ShiftMatch system to allocate future shifts.
Please read the FAQs for more information. The FAQs cover information on:
- How to use ShiftMatch
- How to show your availability for and accept shifts
