As of the 15th July 2022, full time, part time and casual employees covered by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Services Award; Aged Care Award; Ambulance and Patient Transport Award; Health Professionals and Support Services Award; Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Services Award; or Supported Employment Services Award can again access to 2 weeks’ unpaid pandemic leave. This leave is available immediately to all employees who are required to self-isolate. It does not need to be accrued first and employees do not need to use all their paid leave before accessing it.
Over the past 2 years many of us have struggled with Covid lockdown requirements and the isolation that came with it. Whilst we understand why many wish to return to the office and be with others, employers are now more aware that having people in the office who are unwell comes with downsides. So, what can you do?
On behalf of everyone at Impact HR, thank you to all who attended the 3-hour virtual Workshop on the 29th April. We hope attendees made some fruitful connections during the workshop and learned something new about leading in an increasingly complex COVID-19 world by, developing confidence in leadership skills to build teams and businesses for success now and after post COVID-19.
