10% decline in turnover certificate

The requirements of the 10% decline in turnover certificate are outlined in section 789GDC of the Fair Work Act. To help legacy employers and eligible financial service providers, we’ve developed a template certificate that we consider meets the requirements of that section. Legacy employers and eligible financial service providers aren’t required to use this template.

Returning to the workplace - interactive employer tool

Employers that have been affected by coronavirus can use our Returning to the workplace – interactive employer tool to help get their workplace back up and running.

The tool gives tailored information to employers on returning to the workplace, scaling up operations and adapting to workplace changes. It can help find the information you need when:

  • transitioning employees back to the workplace, including lifting a stand down
  • changing employees’ hours, duties or work location
  • introducing alternative working options for staff
  • keeping up to date with changes to workplace laws.
