COVID-19 Government Financial Assistance
The Government has announced financial assistance for people and businesses affected by COVID-19.
AWUNZ position is that you should be paid when you need to be away from work because of COVID-19. Our first call is for employers to use their own resources to make this possible. You may have additional entitlements in your collective agreement which can be applied at this time. If your employer is not paying you during that time, there is financial assistance that you may be eligible for.
