Further extensions to Schedule X

Further extensions to Schedule X

29 September 2020

On 24 September 2020, the Full Bench of the Fair Work Commission ('Commission') issued a decision to extend the operation of Schedule X-Additional measures during the COVID-19 pandemic in 71 modern awards until 29 March 2021.

The Commission notes the extensions are a necessary step given the growing COVID-19 pandemic and the remaining ‘regulatory gap’ in the award safety net impacting employees who must self-isolate. This will support the vital public policy objective of encouraging those who are required to self-isolate to do so, thus helping businesses to remain open and limiting the transmission of COVID-19 in workplaces.

This extension is to align with and reflect the recent amendments to the JobKeeper Scheme, which will cease on 29 March 2021.
