Prime Minister Scott Morrison has warned that temporary changes to the Fair Work Act will need to be retained beyond the JobKeeper wage subsidy’s scheduled end date of late September. The amendments enable bosses to vary the hours that an employee works and the duties they perform. Morrison says more jobs will be lost if the nation reverts to the inflexible industrial relations regime that was in place before JobKeeper was introduced. He argues that many companies will continue to benefit from the more flexible arrangements even when their revenue has returned to pre-coronavirus levels.
