Independent review of the temporary JobKeeper provisions of the Fair Work Act

If you have trouble accessing this document, please contact us to request a copy in a format you can use.

The Coronavirus Economic Response Package Omnibus (Measures No. 2) Act 2020 temporarily introduced a new Part 6-4C into the Fair Work Act 2009. These were known as the JobKeeper provisions. Under section 789GZB of the Fair Work Act, the Minister for Industrial Relations was required to affect an independent review of the operation of the temporary JobKeeper provisions.

We engaged Nous Group to conduct this review. During the review, Nous Group consulted with employer and employee representatives, as well as the Fair Work Ombudsman and Fair Work Commission. They also used relevant survey and other data on the use and impact of the temporary amendments.

The final report of the independent review was tabled in Parliament on 20 October 2020.
