How JobKeeper will be passed onto our host employers.
The JobKeeper payment is assessed over 2 weeks. At the end of the second week 1300apprentice will run a separate payroll which will be the ‘JobKeeper’ top-up payroll for those apprentice’s and trainees deemed eligible.
1300apprentice will fund the top-up amount to ensure that the apprentice or trainee receives $1500 in gross wages each fortnight.
Once 1300apprentice receive payment from the ATO (monthly), your account will be credited gross normal wages for hours worked. See examples.
Example 1 Chad earns $550 weekly. Based on this, Chad’s gross wage for the fortnight is $1100. To top Chad up to the required $1500 per fortnight under JobKeeper, 1300apprentice will fund the additional $400 in the JobKeeper top-up payroll. No invoice will be issued to the host for this top-up.
Once the ATO payment has been received, 1300apprentice will credit the host $1100 towards wages paid and retain the $400 used to top-up Chad’s wages
Example 2 Karen earns $2100 one week and in the second week earns $1600. Based on this Karen’s gross wage for a fortnight is $3700. As this is above the $1500 per fortnight JobKeeper limit, Karen is not entitled to a top-up.
1300apprentice receive the JobKeeper from the ATO monthly and will credit the full amount of $1500 to your account.
