Hardship Payment Entitlements

50,000 unionists pushed for hardship payments and won!

The Government recently announced hardship payments for workers who are without sick leave. Do you have limited or no access to sick leave or pandemic leave? If so, you may be eligible for government assistance.


If you’re working and don’t have access to paid leave, a $300 payment is available to help you make ends meet while you wait for test results.

If you’re diagnosed with coronavirus or are a close contact of a confirmed case, a one-off $1,500 payment is available.

Contact AEAV on 9287 1713 to discuss your personal circumstances.

Congratulations to union members for winning this important security net in challenging times.
