On 5 May 2020, the Victorian Government confirmed that any eligible Commonwealth Government JobKeeper Payments to meet the $1,500 threshold will not affect the calculation of the WorkCover premium. JobKeeper payment amounts changed from the initial $1500 per fortnight to $1200 per fortnight between 28 September 2020 to 3 January 2021 and $1000 per fortnight from 4 January 2021 to 28 March 2021.

These changes have been made to support Victorian employers during the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic.
