Employers may change the duties and responsibilities of employees, provided that the new duties are safe and reasonably fall within the scope of the employee’s contract. Changes to duties may be made in response: to a downturn in trade, the restructuring of a business or any other reasons impacting the operation of the business. Under the newly inserted Job Keeper provisions under the Fair Work Act (2009), employers must make a Job Keeper enabling direction regarding a change of duties. A Job Keeper enabling direction provides that employers must pay the effected employee the JobKeeper payment or their usual pay. A written notice of such changes must be provided to employees two weeks before the changes are expected to take effect.
