The Department of Industrial and Employment Relations has published a set of Frequently Asked Questions about the conditions of employment during the COVID-19 period. The FAQs cover issues around changes to contracts of employment, vacation / forced / quarantine / unpaid / maternity leave, redundancies, reduction of working hours, notice period, payment of statutory allowances.
