Official from today I get a letter from my employer that the business is in stand down for minimum of 2 months. I am a chef by trade and working for airlines catering company. I can choose to take my accrued annual leave or take unpaid leave. As you all know hospitality retail industry been hit hard by this lockdown measures. Looking for a gig as a chef in restaurants probably a bit tricky. I read on the news that we can apply for jobseeker payment if the job has been affected by coronavirus. Is it true? Any implications for applying this support payment? How much can we get for the payment in order for me to manage my cashflow.
this is my first time applying for support payment other than FTB, left without job and hard to find job elsewhere. Just looking for suggestions out there. 🙏 thank you
