Mutual obligation requirements are now back on for NSW, VIC, SA and Metropolitan Perth as advised by the Department of Education, Skills and Employment. For those customers in the Geraldton region, Mutual Obligations are currently lifted until Tuesday 20 April 2021. These arrangements mean that, for job seekers in the Geraldton area, all Government-imposed mutual obligation requirements are voluntary; no compliance action will be taken and no payments will be suspended by the Government. Workskil Australia is still available to provide assistance as required.
Please see below for information about mutual obligation.
Job seekers will be required to enter their required job search efforts each month to their Job Seeker account via myGov. Please click here for instructions on how to do this. Workskil Australia will remind the job seeker each month via SMS when their job search evidence is due. Job Seeker payments will be suspended if this requirement is not met. Job seekers will be required to participate in appointments with Workskil Australia, agree to their Job Plan, submit their job searches efforts each month, attend agreed activities (where it is safe to do so) and accept any offer of suitable work.
