Hi Penny, as you have picked up, the wage subsidy is being paid at the two flat rates. As I see it, a deliberate move to try and keep things simple(!) The outcome of this is much like you have described – ie, it is possible employers will, rightfully, receive $350pw in respect of employees that are, correctly, paid less than $350pw; and will, rightfully, receive $585.80pw in respect of employees that are paid more than $585.80pw. The employer will receive the subsidy in bulk and there is no requirement to ‘trace’ this or allocate it through to payments made to specific individual employees – simply a requirement that the employer continues to pay each employee at least 80% of what they are normally paid, part-time or full-time for the 12-week period of the subsidy. If they do this, all other things being equal, they will continue to meet the criteria.
