The COVID-19 Short-Term Absence Payment

The Government has announced a new payment for businesses (including self-employed) to help pay for workers who can't work from home or attend work while they wait for the results of a Covid-19 test.

This is a one-off payment of $350 for an eligible worker. It is available from 9 February 2021.

To apply, businesses must not be getting any of the following payments at the same time for the same worker to cover any situation that is also covered by Short-Term Absence Payment.
