To ALL Employees,

Club Update & Access to the COVID-19 Disaster Payment

We are now entering the second week of the lock-down and fingers crossed this will end as planned at 11:59pm this Friday night the 9th of July. Once the Club receives confirmation of the end of the lock-down and a firm date for which we can re-commence trading a member of staff will be in contact to advise you of your shifts and any immediate work requirements.

If your circumstances have changed and you are not available in the days and weeks following re-opening please ensure that you email Melissa Terry on so she is aware for rostering purposes. Some of you may be required to attend the Club prior to re-opening to assist with preparations and you will be contacted directly with the necessary information.

All future rosters will be posted at the Club as normal, however please be aware that trading conditions once we re-open are uncertain and roster changes may be required to be made on a daily basis in response to the previous day’s trade.

COVID-19 Disaster Payment

You may be eligible to apply for the COVID-19 Disaster Payment with Services Australia if you must meet all of the following criteria:

• you are an Australian citizen, permanent resident or hold a temporary visa with working rights;
• you do not have access to any special pandemic or sick leave;
• you have liquid assets of $10,000 or less (liquid assets include savings, loans and shares); and
• you are not on another Commonwealth payment for example, Youth Allowance or JobSeeker.

If you satisfy these conditions, I encourage you to apply for the COVID-19 Disaster Payment. The payments commence from the second week of the stand-down.

How do I apply?

You may apply for the COVID-19 Disaster Payment through Services Australia on and from Sunday 4 July 2021. Information on how to apply is available here.

If you have any questions regarding the COVID-19 Disaster Payment, please contact Services Australia. If you have any other concerns regarding your employment, you can contact me via email on

Employee Assistance Program

The Club would also like to take this opportunity to remind you of its Employee Assistance Program. This is a free and confidential counselling service, available to you if you feel this would be of benefit to you. You may call them on 1300 727 308.

We hope you continue to keep yourself safe during this difficult period and we look forward to seeing you back at work as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely
