Access to childcare for Melbourne workers from today – a quick guide
New and updated Directions made under the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 (Vic) have been issued which have outlined when Melbourne workers can leave home to access childcare (or allow in-home childcare).
While there have been conflicting media reports on these issues, it is now clear that childcare and access to school will only be available to ‘permitted workers’. Existing exemptions for vulnerable children remain.
We’ve summarised this in an infographic to assist employers and employees. Please share this with anyone who you think would find it useful.
We recommend that employers check the Directions on the Department of Health & Human Services website if they are unsure about their exact circumstances.
Our Employment, People & Safety team are available to assist with any queries you may have.
