Yeah, just like you said. We don't have enough work to be able to pay her full-time, but there is a good 10 to 20 hours we could really use her for - I've been picking up the slack and doing 60 - 70 hour weeks in the meantime.I get it but didn't you stand her down because of no work. How can you all of a sudden have work when the Government is picking up the bill.
I mean if you cut the hours back to 10 or 20 then she would have to keep doing those hours and she would still get full jobkeeper.
When jobkeeper finishes you will have to decide if you keep her on or get someone else so you could leverage that and let her know not to come knocking when it's all over.
Am I missing something.
It is short-sighted on her behalf, as there's not much chance we're going to re-instate her when the jobkeeper / benefits stop. It just flies in the face of what the government is trying to do to help small business.
