Woolworths announced on 12 March that it would pay its casual workers two weeks pay if they have to self-isolate because of COVID-19. The retailer is Australia’s biggest employer, with 190,000 staff and around 55,000 casual workers. It will also pay full-time and part-time staff if they have to self-isolate and have used up all their paid sick leave. Meanwhile, the federal government has announced it will waive the waiting period for casuals who wish to apply for sickness payments available through the federal welfare system.
