Childcare providers no longer eligible for Jobkeeper

JobKeeper rule changes for child care providers

From 20 July 2020, if you have employees who work for a child care subsidy (CCS) approved provider they will no longer be eligible for JobKeeper payments. This includes sole traders operating a child care service.

Identifying staff that are no longer eligible

To prepare for this change, if you have staff working in child care you should assess if their duties relate principally to the delivery of a CCS approved service. These duties could include:

  • educators
  • centre directors and managers
  • administration staff
  • cooks
  • cleaners
  • gardeners
  • research or advocacy staff.

You must not continue to claim JobKeeper for your employees who are no longer eligible. We will not reimburse you for payments made to employees after JobKeeper fortnight 8 (6 July 2020 to 19 July 2020).

If you are a business running mixed services

If you run other activities in addition to a CCS approved provider, such as aged care, you may have employees that are still eligible for JobKeeper payments. If an employee has mixed duties, they will only be eligible if their principal duties are not CCS related.

If you have employees who undertake childcare related activities that are minor or secondary to their main responsibility, they may still be eligible for JobKeeper payments.

For more information, including some examples of mixed businesses, visit Your eligible employees.
