JobKeeper eligibility for 16 and 17 year old employees has changed

by PBS Partners | May 22nd, 2020

From the fortnight commencing 11 May 2020, JobKeeper Payment eligibility for employees aged 16 and 17 years has changed.

If you have claimed, or intend to claim, JobKeeper payments for employees who were 16 or 17 years old on 1 March 2020, they need to have been independent, or not in full time study on 1 March 2020 in order to remain eligible.  

Your 16 and 17 year old employees will need to complete an updated JobKeeper employee nomination notice and return it to you as soon as possible.
