  • Amount of JobKeeper payment

    As an employer, you'll receive $1,500 from us per employee per fortnight as long as you and your employees meet the eligibility criteria.

    We pay you for each eligible employee monthly in arrears (JobKeeper payments began in the first week of May 2020).

    An employer will usually get $3,000 a month per eligible employee for the two fortnightly periods in a month.
