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.
What about public residential aged care?
This announcement has no bearing on public aged care facilities which still have single-site employment arrangements, funded by the Victorian Government, in place until the end of September 2021.
