Temporary changes to the Fair Work Act: Changes have been made to support the implementation of the JobKeeper wage subsidy scheme. JobKeeper employers can ask their JobKeeper employees to change when they work or take paid annual leave, or can require them to reduce their hours or days, change their duties, or change their work location. Safeguards apply.
