Is there support for workers to test and isolate?
Union members fought for and won having the Test and Isolate support payment expanded in NSW.
From 9 September 2021, the Test and Isolate support payment will be available to all eligible NSW workers. This payment was previously only available to workers in local government areas of concern.
More information including eligibility is available from Service NSW.
Information on Victoria’s Test Isolation Payment is available here.
You must meet eligibility criteria to access the $450 payment including not already receiving Australian Government income support and not having access to paid sick leave.
