Sydney COVID-19 Lockdown: Is your employer forcing you to start using your annual leave during the lockdown?

7NEWS journalist Robert Ovadia presented the issue to the NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet at today’s NSW COVID emergency update.

7NEWS’ Robert Ovadia: “Do you think it’ss fair that people should be taking annual leave in their homes through no fault of their own?”

NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet: “I think what is fair and important is that employers work with the support that they need. We have worked very closely with the Commonwealth Government to make sure that those workers who have had their hours reduced are able to receive payments through Services Australia. That will provide an essential support that workers need during this difficult time.”
