7 days for close contacts

We’re aware of Multicap’s direction to staff that close contacts of a COVID positive case have to isolate for 14 days.

We wrote to Nigel about this recently and reminded him the current Public Health direction is that disability support workers are classed as essential workers, therefore close contacts only need to isolate for 7 days, and also asked if workers identified as close contacts will be paid for the additional 7 days on isolation as per their rosters.

Nigel said that Multicap have amended their isolation period for staff to 7 days as per current government guidelines.

Unfortunately, the government guidelines are always changing, so if you're unsure about whether your employer has given you the correct information, give HACSUassist a call and we can look into it for you.

For more information about this or any other industrial matter, members should contact HACSUassist on 1300 880 032 or email or complete our online contact form
