For JobKeeper 2.0, the tier that relates to an employee will depend on the average number of hours worked in the four-week pay periods prior to 1 March 2020. It is highly likely that these employees worked for greater than an average of 20 hours per week in the four-week pay periods prior to 1 March 2020 and will therefore be on the top tier ($1,200 per fortnight commencing 28 September 2020 or $1,000 per fortnight commencing 4 January 2021).
