"If employees have been stood down after the first of March 2020, does an employer have to pay them to receive the $1,500 reimbursement per fortnight?"
The answer is, yes.
In another video, we talked about the requirement to pay the employees first, before you receive the reimbursement. This includes employees who have been stood down because technically they're still employed by the business.
And so, the answer to the questions is a big, YES.
Your team members who've been stood down need to receive, at minimum, $1,500 per fortnight.
