ANSWERS TO COVID SITUATIONS
Loss of work and income
You can apply for the government payment:
Personal financial crisis caused by loss of work and income
In the case of mortgages and loan payments that you can’t meet, go and discuss your situation with you bank or creditor. You might be surprised at how helpful they might be.
If you believe you were infected with COVID while working get a worker’s compensation certificate from your GP and send it to me. This will start a claim. The insurance company will investigate to see if the claim is legitimate.
For staff who can’t go into their usual workplaces, other work will be offered, if it is available.
Annual leave and sick leave entitlements
Can be applied for if you have it.
YOU CAN CONVERT FROM THE CASUAL RATE TO THE ENTITLEMENT RATE TO ACCRUE ANNUAL LEAVE AND SICK LEAVE:
- Make your request to me
- I will have rate details sent to you
- If you agree, accrual will start immediately
Close contact exemptions
See the following details for exemptions from close contact isolation:
Temporary exemption from close contact quarantine for critical workers in critical industries
Workplace crossover infections
We will, where ever possible, manipulate rosters to minimise crossover infection.
THIS IS A VERY ANXIOUS AND TIRING TIME FOR ALL.
FROM ALL OF US ON THE BOARD OF MANAGEMENT AND IN THE MANAGEMENT AREA, A VERY BIG THANK YOU FOR EFFORTS THAT ARE ,SO FAR, PAYING OFF.
