Able and JobKeeper forms

Able has emailed staff asking them to fill out a JobKeeper application form.

We've contacted Able to find out what this is about and they've confirmed they've had a reduction in people coming through their day support centres, resulting in a drastic drop in income.

Able have said they've redeployed staff from these centres and, because the drop in income is greater than the stipulated 15%, they are eligible to apply for JobKeeper for their staff.

Based on this evidence HACSU would suggest to members that it is ok to sign the form at this stage.

With all that’s going on at the moment, we hope members and their families are well.

Please stay safe and make sure to reach out to us if necessary.
