Case Study - Stood Down

The Musty Goat pub is owned by Gavin and has had to close down due to COVID-19. Gavin had one employee, Kate. Kate has been stood down. Kate previously earned $1,000 per fortnight but now earns $0 per fortnight.



  • Gavin needs to continue to engage with Kate and pay her a minimum of $1,500 per fortnight.
  • The government will then pay Gavin a subsidy of $1,500 per fortnight monthly in arrears.
  • No Super is required to be paid in respect of the payment made.
