Temporary Changes To Workplace Laws During Coronavirus.
The Fair Work Commission has temporarily varied 6 awards in response to the coronavirus pandemic, to allow for things like changes in classifications, duties and hours. So far, the awards that have been varied are:
· Restaurant Award
· Clerks Award
· Hospitality Award
· Educational Services (Schools) General Staff Award
· Vehicle Award
· Fast Food Award.
And there are more applications to vary awards that will soon be heard by the Commission.
The Commission has also temporarily varied a number of awards to provide for unpaid pandemic leave and more annual leave flexibility.
