Time off when on JobKeeper

Where an employee's JobKeeper payment ceased due to ineligibility, (such as they were on a worker's compensation absence, paid parental leave, etc) the fortnight finish should be recorded in the relevant pay run. If the employee returns/becomes eligible again and the JobKeeper payment recommences for this employee, the employer will need to notify of the new fortnight start in the relevant pay run. To do this follow the normal instructions of adding the JobKeeper start.

 

To record the finished payment:

 

  1. While in the pay run select the employee you wish to add the payment to.
  2. Click the Actions button and select Add JobKeeper Payment.
  3. Under JobKeeper options select JobKeeper finish.
  4. Select the relevant JobKeeper Period.
  5. Select Finished.

 

For full instructions on recording the fortnight finish and start categories in a pay run, see here (specifically sections 'How to work out your JobKeeper Start Number' and 'How to notify the ATO if you stop JobKeeper payments for an employee'.
