  • JobKeeper payment – employee nomination notice

    If you are a business and have been impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19), you may be eligible to access the JobKeeper Payment.

    If you have enrolled or intend to enrol for JobKeeper payments, you need to complete the JobKeeper employee nomination notice to:

    • notify your eligible employees that you intend to participate in the scheme
    • ask them if they agree to be nominated and receive payments from you as part of the scheme.

    If you haven't provided all your relevant employees with an employee nomination notice within the required time, you need to do this as soon as possible.

    Next steps:

    Both you and the nominated employee need to complete the form. You do not need to send this notice to us. However, you should keep a record to document that your employee has agreed that you claim the JobKeeper payment for them.

    We do not require your employees' signature. A nomination notice can be submitted to you through:

    • your internal business process – for example, a business HR portal, or
    • the employee’s own form of communication channel – for example, email.

    You may have requested your employee’s signature, but it is not practical for them to provide it in the notice. In that case, it would be reasonable to accept the action of the employee sending you an email as a form of signature.

    Note: You should not use this JobKeeper employee nomination notice if you are intending to claim JobKeeper payments for an eligible business participant for example a partner in a partnership, an adult beneficiary of a trust or a shareholder or director of a company or a sole trader. A different nomination process will be required.
