Private residential aged care single site employment update – Melbourne Metro and Mitchell Shire
As foreshadowed in ANMF newsflash issued Monday 9 November, the ANMF can confirm the Commonwealth Government will cease funding single site employment from 30 November 2020.
This decision has been made on the current low risk of community transmission and Victoria having no new cases of COVID-19 in the past 14 days.
Members should begin preparation for a return to working with more than one provider if that is what you were doing before the restrictions were put in place, unless you choose to cease working with multiple employers. If you wish to cease working with multiple employers you should notify your primary employer and commence discussions about a permanent increase to your hours at your present workplace and then contact your other employer/s as soon as possible to give notice that you will not be returning.
Need support or advice
Members who need support or advice transitioning back to multi-site employment can make contact the ANMF Member Assistance service.
